The TTU Greenhouse Complex currently consists of eight glass and aluminum National Greenhouses, a steam drying facility and plant laboratory with four growth chambers, an autoclave, an enology lab, a floral design classroom, and standard laboratory equipment. We also have two classrooms outfitted with LCD projectors, Wi-Fi and document cameras to assist us in supporting the over 1000 students that pass through classes held at the greenhouse each year.

The complex has four research houses with high intensity lighting and automated temperature control to support the estimated $3,000,000 of research conducted for federal, state and private grants each year. In addition, the three teaching compartments house an interior foliage collection along with plant production facilities to support the laboratory experiences of our students.
