The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is located both in Faraday Hall West and Faraday Hall. Office of Dr. Vanýsek is in Faraday Hall West, Room 418.

Street address: Buildings on campus have no street numbers. If there were, then Faraday Hall West would likely have the address: 190 Normal Road, DeKalb, IL 60115. On the Garmin's MetroGuide North America v7 is at the location of the building shown a body of water labeled "Star Lake." Nobody recalls a lake at that place and its five-prong shape is way too artificial star-like. My suspicion is that somebody managed to implant this feature in the map as a ruse. Without making any implied connections it should be known that the university paper is the Northern Star and has a five-pronged star as a logo.
