The Thomas M. Siebel Center for Computer Science is a $50 million, 225,000 sq ft (20,900 m2) integrated research and educational facility designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson located on the Urbana campus at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). The Siebel Center houses the Department of Computer Science, which currently shares the distinction of being one of the top five Computer Science departments in the nation with Stanford University, the University of California, Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.[1] The center has over 225,000 square feet (21,000 m²) of research, office, and laboratory space, an undergraduate population of 900, over 450 graduate students, and 100 faculty and research members.[2] The Siebel Center claims to be the first "Computing Habitat", featuring a fully interactive environment and intelligent building system. The facility is equipped with computer controlled locks, proximity and location sensors, cameras to track room activity, and other sensory and control features.

The building is dedicated to Thomas Siebel in recognition of his donation to the University that funded a portion of the construction.
