Health Sciences Campus

As of August 2023, the College of Nursing and Health Sciences has started the transition to the Health Sciences Campus.

The fourth floor of the 501 Building (formerly the St. Francis Office Building) has undergone a complete renovation. The renovated space is utilized for meetings, receptions, professional development programs and other events. All junior and senior level nursing courses are taught in the 501 Building. Renovations to the 501 Building were made possible by a philanthropic investment from LHC Group.

There are two parking towers for the Health Sciences Campus. The 501 Parking Tower is attached to the building and is reserved for tenants, college faculty, and staff. The 611 Parking Tower is adjacent to the 501 Building on 611 St. Landry Street.

Nursing students registered in NURS 308 and above are able to purchase a permit by logging in to the Parking Portal on ULink. A shuttle will be available from the 611 Parking Tower to the main campus.  

The next phase of the development of the Health Sciences Campus will be the construction of a Regional Simulation Center.

The Interim Dean is currently working with university academic affairs and planning and facilities offices on the design and programming of this state-of-the-art facility, which will provide opportunities for simulation experiences for undergraduate and graduate nursing and health sciences students, and well as interdisciplinary educational experiences and the availability of the Simulation Center for area health care institutions.
