Facilities in Austin

Buildings PhotoSituated in the heart of The University of Texas at Austin campus, the college primarily makes its home in the two-building pharmacy complex that includes the north, or original pharmacy building, and the south building. Between the two buildings is a courtyard that serves as a gathering space for many college events. Additionally, the two buildings are connected by walkways on the third and fourth levels.

In addition to well-equipped classrooms, laboratories and offices, the pharmacy complex provides two classrooms used for interactive distance learning; and pharmaceutical technology laboratories with facilities for product development, pilot manufacturing, sterile production and quality control, and stability testing. The south building houses a student computer laboratory and a computer teaching lab, and a separate lab devoted to helping students and faculty develop presentations and curriculum using the latest in instructional technology.
