Tour the new College of Health Professions building, which is scheduled to open for classes in fall 2019.

Inspired by critical intersections — in health care delivery as well as education and research — the design of the new 154,000-square-foot facility showcases the university's premier programs in Allied Health.

Uniting nine departments, as well as the Dean’s Office and the Virginia Center on Aging, will position the school for continuing growth and enhance its ability to successfully compete for the very best students and faculty researchers.

Diagonally sited at the interstices between the student activity center and VCU's medical campus, the L-shaped structure will channel pedestrian traffic and allow room for a future research building. Expansive glazing visually connects the built and natural landscapes.

With its strong geometries, the LEED Silver design of the building — unanimously approved by Virginia’s Art and Architecture Review Board (AARB) — continues the architectural legacy of its downtown Richmond site while utilizing motifs that express the VCU brand.
