Regents approve updated College of Pharmacy building plan

Rendering of the new College of Pharmacy building

After a pandemic-related delay, the University of Michigan is moving forward with plans to construct a new teaching and research facility for the College of Pharmacy. The Board of Regents approved the schematic design and a revised budget for the projection in October 2022, and authorized construction to begin.

The 142,000-square-foot building will address the college’s need for a larger and more modern space, with active-learning-style classrooms, laboratories, associated support spaces, faculty and administrative offices and student-focused areas. It will be built at the corner of Glen Avenue and East Huron Street, with a projected completion date of fall 2025. Funding for the project will come from reserves and gifts.

Currently, the College of Pharmacy’s teaching, research and office spaces are distributed across seven locations on campus.
