Drexel University Health Sciences Building

CNHP's New Academic Home

Drexel University’s Health Sciences Building will open in September 2022 in University City at 60 North 36th Street, Philadelphia. This 12-story, 460,000 square foot, state-of-the-art academic home will bring together the College of Nursing and Health Professions, the College of Medicine and the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Professional Studies, enhancing collaboration, research and practice opportunities.

New administrative offices and transformational instructional spaces, including simulation, anatomy and wet labs and simulated patient rooms, will provide a setting in which students can hone clinical skills through hands-on learning experiences.
