Barnard Hall (formerly the EPS building) houses the departments of Physics and Computer Science. It is also home to the Center for Biofilm Engineering and Microfabrication Lab as well as classrooms, research facilities for graduate and undergraduate students, the Burns Technology Center, and a lecture hall. In addition, Barnard Hall contains Studio 1080.

Constructed in 1997, Barnard Hall takes the place of the old Ryon Lab.
