Dedicated in 2010, the Thomas and Mary Shields Science Center at Stonehill College houses the Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Psychology Departments.

The Shields Center offers state-of-the-art laboratories designed by the architects with input from the faculty in the different fields to foster inquiry and learning.

The Peggy and Ray Pettit atrium is now one of the most popular places on campus. Students gather there to study at all hours of the day. Adjacent to the atrium is the Dunkin Donuts kiosk open for about sixteen hours a day to support the students and faculty in the building.
