Set across 88 acres of the West Des Moines Innovation Corridor, Des Moines University's ground-up campus establishes a premier destination for students, faculty, staff and friends of the university. The Des Moines University project will include four buildings with various programs including: academic, office, student support services, recreation and operations support services buildings. The building square footage will total approximately 350,000 GSF in the Phase One construction.

The campus will include flexible environments that allow for didactic, active-learning and small group work. Learning studios and laboratories will be technology-rich while simulated health care environments will reflect those of modern care facilities, providing learners with a safe environment in which to practice patient care.

Wellness and recreation facilities will allow students, faculty and staff to stay active and healthy. An integrated student clinic will provide access to care for students to maintain a well-balanced lifestyle and a private student counseling suite ensures students have access to mental health care. The campus will also feature a mix of open and enclosed collaboration spaces that converge in the heart of the campus.

The entire campus has also been designed with the ability to grow and evolve over time. Flexibility will allow the university to respond to future needs in health care and health care education.

The campus is expected to open in 2023, just in time for the school's 125th anniversary.
