There are 93 buildings on BYU’s campus, and chances are you’ve only set foot in a few of them. Here is a list of three buildings we bet you haven’t heard of yet.

Harvey Fletcher was the first dean of BYU’s Engineering Department, and was a internationally renowned physicist. The Fletcher Building (FB) is located just south of the Wilkinson Center on the BYU campus. The FB is currently home to the Mechanical Engineering Department.

2. Brewster Building

Sam F. Brewster was the director of the physical plant department, as well as the developer of the building. The building was known as the Physical Plant Building until 1974, but was renamed after Sam F. Brewster’s retirement in his honor. The BRWB is unique because it allows shops at all levels to have dock access. Located at the corner of E Campus Drive and E 900 N St, the BRWB houses the Physical Facilities Department administrative offices, various shops, and is a warehouse.

3. Taylor Building
