The George P. and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics and Astronomy


The Mitchell Institute welcomes individuals and groups who come here to work, study or visit.  We are dedicated to providing an environment that inspires, stimulates and encourages all to imagine. 

We are especially committed to providing a workplace that is accessible to all regardless of their physical limitations. Both The Mitchell Institute and Mitchell Physics Building at Texas A&M were designed and constructed in compliance with the Texas Accessibility Standards and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The site and buildings are fully accessible.  A tiered garden and sloping walkway, located between the Mitchell and Blocker buildings, provide an accessible route from Ireland Street to the Mitchell complex as well as to the Jack E. pown Chemical Engineering and Cyclotron Buildings.

Architects Michael Graves & Associates made certain that accessible pathways and ramps are visually recognizable and provide access to elevators, bathrooms, offices and classrooms.

Please contact Cheryl Picone with questions or special requirements that will make your visit more comfortable.
