A large and modern building complex of the Faculty of Natural Sciences of the Paris Lodron University Salzburg is located in Nonntal. The modern research facility features impressive architecture and an adjacent botanical garden. NAWI is also a perfect venue for events such as seminars, presentations, congresses and meetings.

Since March 2017, the laboratory building in Salzburg-Itzling has become part of the Faculty of Natural Sciences at the University of Salzburg. The building's main entrance is adorned by a three-meter-high sculpture of Christian Doppler, the world-famous Salzburg physicist and mathematician. In addition to laboratories and offices, the building also has several modern lecture halls and seminar rooms that can be rented for external events.
