The I³R Building

Coming late 2024, the state-of-the-art I³R Building will be located at the center of the University of Arkansas campus, at the corner of Dickson and Duncan Streets.

Everything – from the building’s workspaces and labs to its location – is designed to foster collaboration, integration, and innovation.

The ~144,000 square foot facility will house leading-edge technology, laboratory space and research equipment. All three floors will feature expansive collaborative spaces designed to bring people together to workshop ideas and move those ideas toward innovation.
