The $64M Thomas M. Siebel Center for Computer Science was made possible through the generosity of Thomas M. Siebel, CEO of Siebel Systems and matching funding from the State of Illinois. Ground was broken on the new facility on November 15, 2001, and it was dedicated May 1, 2004. The building's 225,000 square feet are intended to be a "computing habitat incorporating intelligent technology that anticipates and responds to [human] activity". Designed by LZT Associates, Inc, and Bohlin, Cywinski, and Jackson, the Siebel Center won the Illinois Engineering Council's 2004 Outstanding Engineering Achievement award.
The Siebel Center takes the place of the Digital Computer Laboratory (DCL) as the home of the Department of Computer Science. Similar to the Beckman Institute, the Seibel Center features an onsite cafe, the Bevande Cafe, which offers a variety of food and beverage items.
