University of Wisconsin - Madison
School of Veterinary Medicine Addition and Renovation
Advancing excellence in animal and human health
Having served the UW-Madison campus since 1983, the School of Veterinary Medicine is consistently ranked among the top ten schools in the country and has graduated over 2,500 veterinarians, performed thousands of patient visits annually, and generated globally vital research in both veterinary and human medicine. As these programs continue to grow, the university has embarked on a significant expansion and renovation of the original building – which was also designed by Flad – to ensure clinical services and research discoveries maintain a trajectory of excellence into the future.
A new, three-story addition connects to the original structure at each level, providing a significant expansion that doubles the size of the small animal hospital, expands labs for studying naturally occurring animal and human diseases, triples the space dedicated to research labs for the study of infectious disease, and supplies much needed student collaboration and instruction areas. Renovations in the existing building provide modern space and technology upgrades for the small and large animal hospitals. These enhanced facilities support the school's tradition of compassionate 24/7 care, recruitment of the best talent in the country, and science-focused investigation of our most pressing health challenges.
Serving populations from household pets to equine and agricultural animals, the new building addition and site are designed to welcome all community members. Campus and visitor pedestrian connections, pet exercise areas, and dedicated facility entry points for different species work in tandem with conservation and sustainability strategies to create a safe and healthy environment.
