The College of Pharmacy is the flagship program of Xavier University of Louisiana. This major addition allows the program to meet the needs of its expanding enrollment and doubles the college’s building area.
The new five-story building connects to the existing Pharmacy building and to the University’s award winning Library and Resource Center (also designed by Blitch/Knevel), creating a unified complex around a central courtyard. The lower two floors contain a 440-seat auditorium (divisible into two 220-seat auditoriums). The third floor includes a state-of-the-art mock pharmacy/skills lab facility, a crucial component of a modern pharmacy degree program.
Teaching labs, research labs, and student offices round out the program of the new building, while administrative components and faculty offices are located in renovated space in the existing building. An N.I.H. certified vivarium is located on the 5th level.
