Find your place – and make your mark – in our world-class facilities and academic spaces, where our students learn on the best medical technology and equipment available.

Joseph F. and Francis P. Brant Academic and Student Center

The Joseph F. and Francis P. Brant Academic and Student Center offers three floors of academic spaces, student lounges, seminar rooms, and learning resource spaces, as well as state-of-the-art laboratories. Here, students learn in classrooms with sophisticated two-way videoconferencing. The Brant Academic and Student Center also includes quiet study spaces, conference rooms, and meeting areas, where students can find a quiet spot to study or connect with their classmates or professors.

The Brant Academic and Student Center is also home to the Library and Learning Center, a branch of the Henrietta DeBenedictis Library at MCPHS–Boston. The Library and Learning Center features a computer resource area and group study spaces and meeting rooms. Our students enjoy electronic access to the complete MCPHS health sciences library system and have access to our interlibrary loan system with the Henrietta DeBenedictis Library at MCPHS–Boston, as well as many of New England’s leading medical and academic libraries.

Brant Building

Our Brant Building is home to classrooms, study areas, and laboratories – including recently renovated, state-of-the-art academic and clinical treatment space. At the Brant Building, students of all disciplines can utilize community meeting spaces, quiet study areas, and conference rooms for small group study.

For those looking to relax, there are plenty of options at the Brant Hub. This 10,000-square-foot Adirondack-style facility draws students, faculty, and staff together to study, socialize, or just relax around the dignified stone fireplace that is the centerpiece of the facility. Four well-appointed group study rooms, a high-tech computer study room, classrooms, pediatric and adult occupational therapy labs, and a café surround the central gathering space, which features wood and stone accents and dramatic lodge-style exposed rafters.

At the Brant Student Lounge, you will discover the perfect space for group activities and socializing. It is fully equipped with comfortable couches, lockers, a kitchen, a big-screen TV, and even gaming systems.

Cutting edge laboratory facilities

In our state-of-the-art laboratories, students gain hands-on experience working on the same equipment they will use in their careers.

In the patient assessment laboratories, PA and family nurse practitioner students learn in twelve standardized primary care stations that simulate clinical care settings and enable our students to enhance their skill sets. In the clinical simulation laboratory, our nursing students use computerized manikins to appropriately assess and intervene in a wide variety of clinical simulations.

In the professional pharmacy practice laboratory, students practice compounding and experience pharmacy practice simulation, which introduces them to the roles and responsibilities of the pharmacist.

Occupational therapy students gain hands-on experience in recently renovated facilities, which include a sensory integration pediatric laboratory and an adult rehabilitation laboratory. These labs simulate a patient’s real-life living and working environment, including a complete re-creation of a typical apartment. The laboratory also includes a simulation of a hand and upper-extremity orthopedic and neurological clinic.

On-site parking availability

Students, faculty, and staff on our Manchester campus currently take advantage of parking availability conveniently located in outdoor lots on campus, with plans underway to build covered parking lots at 34 Fir Street.

Growing to meet student needs

In order to meet the needs of our diverse, growing student community, the University recently announced plans to renovate the newly acquired 52 Dow Street, a dignified stone building that harkens back to Manchester’s mill yard roots. The 9,300 square foot facility will undergo a complete interior and exterior renovation in anticipation of future academic use.
