The College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences has announced a $278 million upgrade and 300,000-plus-square-foot expansion of its current veterinary medicine and education facilities on the South Campus of CSU.

The Board of Governors approved the program plan for the veterinary health complex at its October meeting.

The Doctor of Veterinary Medicine curriculum renewal, planned for full rollout in Fall 2026, will educate “day-one-ready” veterinarians. New and renovated facilities will allow the college to implement this progressive new curriculum while enlarging class sizes and continuing to meet growing demand for skilled veterinarians.

The new veterinary health complex is expected to break ground in early 2023 and be completed in phases through 2028. The James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital, originally constructed in 1978, will become the animal specialty hospital in support of clinical education and service.
