    If you mean "the building where physics is studied" then you would say
    "i study in the physics building". Careful that the science "physics" is plural in English.

    It does have -s, but is it plural? Do you say 'physics is interesting' or 'physics are...'?

    Oh yes. I see. Perhaps its not plural. One of the many discrepancies of descriptive grammar.
