A High-Tech Campus That’s Reaching Even Higher!

Since welcoming our first class, HU has upheld its commitment to stay on the cutting edge.

  • Award-winning state-of-the-art eSports training arena.

Announcing New University Tower 

As our student body has grown and our acquisition of state-of-the-art equipment has increased, we’ve come to realize that HU needs more space. The university now is constructing a new, $100 million 11-story Health Science Education Center a few blocks from HU’s education center.

The new building, set to be completed in early 2022, will accommodate at least 1,000 new students in nursing, pharmaceutical sciences and other allied health programs, along with advanced manufacturing and interactive media programs.

Located at South Third and Chestnut streets, the university broke ground on the building, which will offer 260,000 square feet of educational space, in July of 2019.

“This project represents a major step forward for the university,” said university President Dr. Eric Darr said. “Not just because of the facility itself, but because it represents a major movement in healthcare and health sciences for the university.”

Learning Centers 

In addition to HU’s extensive campus facilities and state-of-the-art technology, the university also is home to a number of learning Centers and Programs to advance learning and experience. They include:
