TIE3S and most of its faculty and students are housed in the Baylor Sciences Building (BSB), which is home to six academic departments and eight interdepartmental programs and centers. This Baylor Science Building offers 150 laboratories, 40 classrooms, three restaurants and a coffee shop. It is a state-of-the-art space designed to facilitate interdisciplinary education and research.
Research facilities at the BSB include:
The BEAR facility bridges the gap between field observations, which represent the habitat of interest but may be influenced by many interacting chemicals or other aquatic stressors simultaneously, and laboratory or small field experiments, which allow for control of environmental variables yet are too small and unrepresentative of natural conditions to be realistic.
The Baylor Wastewater Research Site at the Waco Metropolitan Area Regional Sewerage System (WMARSS) has access to municipal wastewater and contains several on-site wastewater treatment systems within a controlled access facility.
The Carlile Research Facility includes geophysical, hydrological, and hydrogeological equipment (including a geoprobe coring rig) maintained by several TIE3s geoscientists.
