Renovation & Expansion of Student Space!

We are excited to be creating more storage, study, relaxation, and recreation space for students! The school completed a study of student spaces in fall 2022, and selected an architectural firm with expertise in medical education to begin design plans with robust student input. To accommodate students’ needs for uninterrupted use of the spaces, construction is scheduled in three phases.

  • Phase 1: Includes renovation of the student gym and study spaces in E.S. Harkness Hall and installation of 130 additional student lockers. Read more about the plans, which are nearing completion!
  • Phase 2: Includes expansion of the student lounge, construction of a new recreational space, and expansion of the gym and gym locker rooms. Scheduled to be completed in winter 2024.
  • Phase 3: Includes new 24/7 study, lounge, and relaxation space in the Cushing Whitney Medical Library. These renovations will take place during summer 2024.
