The new UCI Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing is under construction!
The building will be part of the Susan and Henry Samueli College of Health Sciences, a landmark 9-acre health sciences complex that promises to be a national showcase for integrative health patient care, training and research.
- Design elements for the health sciences and nursing complex will combine classrooms, research labs and meeting spaces into collective environments that will foster innovation and discovery.
- Strategically placed classrooms, collaboration areas, team rooms and break areas will draw different constituents toward the center.
- Two central staircases and three elevators will facilitate chance encounters among researchers, faculty, clinicians and administrators.
- Within the nursing school, a lounge will open to a quiet outdoor space in which students can relax and collaborate. This lounge will be easily accessible from the teaching labs where they spend much of their day. Indoor and outdoor shaded study areas will enable individual and group activities and study.
