About Sprague Hall
Since 1994, the CRI and the CFCCC have administered Sprague Hall, a research building dedicated to cancer and genetics. Sprague Hall serves as the physical center of cancer research on the UC Irvine Campus.
Sprague Hall is a 62,393 sq ft. building located at 839 Health Sciences Road on the UCI Main Campus. It houses the laboratories of ~30 faculty and has five conference rooms, faculty offices, a student lounge, and an atrium available for the cancer community to utilize. The Cancer Research Institute office is located on the 2nd floor in Room 236.
All the meeting spaces in the building are reserved on a priority basis, where preference is given to affiliates of the Cancer Research Institute or members of the Cancer Center. Reservations can be requested by emailing CRI@uci.edu at least 48 hours prior to your event/meeting.
The building is open Monday-Friday from 8am-6pm. Access outside these hours requires a keycard. To request keycard access, email email@example.com with the name of the individual, and affiliated lab/faculty member.
If you will be hosting a meeting/event in the building, you will need to arrange for trash/recycling services through Facilities Management. Due to the volume of requests, the CRI is unable to provide technical assistance for any A/V issues or assistance in re-arranging furniture to align with your meeting needs.
Non-UCI entities/vendors interested in hosting events in the building must comply with all UCI & UCI Health requirements.
