Our building's history
The School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is located in an ultramodern building that opened in August 2018 on Binghamton University's 15-acre Health Sciences Campus in Johnson City, N.Y. The first cohort of PharmD students enrolled in 2017 and had class on the University's main campus in Vestal until moving to the new building. The school's inaugural class of Doctor of Pharmacy students graduated in 2021.
The campus is a few minutes’ drive from both UHS Wilson Medical Center and Ascension Lourdes Hospital, and also houses the University’s Decker College of Nursing and Health Sciences (which opened in Feb. 2021) and other healthcare-based organizations and high-tech businesses.
The 105,000-square-foot, four-story building includes ultramodern research labs; teaching labs; offices for faculty and staff; and interactive classrooms that can be used for lectures, team-based learning and small-group work. There are compounding, pharmaceutical care and sterile labs, mock community and hospital pharmacies as well as a cutting-edge simulation lab.
Nearly two floors of the building are dedicated to research with high-tech research tools and equipment as well as high-throughput screening capability and large-data computing.
Faculty and staff moved into the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences building beginning Monday, July 16, 2018.
New York state provided funding for the $60 million school in the state budget.
