Expanding our impact

Building on excellence

In a four-storey addition connecting B.C. Matthews Hall with the Lyle Hallman Institute for Health Promotion, ideas are coming to life.

With ample work spaces and state-of-the art teaching and research labs, the 56,000 square-foot expansion is designed to support innovation and inspire collaboration. The 350-seat lecture theatre, one of the largest on campus, is allowing us to continue to expand our programming, while a floor dedicated to hands-on learning and the School of Anatomy supports our commitment to improving facilities for experiential education.
