Penn State bioengineering research laboratories and facilities

Research Labs and Facilities

The Department of Biomedical Engineering is housed within the Hallowell Building, which is located in the West Campus area of University Park. The building offers 18,000 square feet of laboratory, office, and classroom space and is home to many of our research facilities. Additional facilities are located throughout University Park, including the 275,600 square-foot Millennium Sciences Complex, and at the Penn State Hershey Medical Center.

In 2014, the Penn State Project Decision Review Board approved plans for a new state-of-the-art biomedical engineering and chemical engineering facility that will more than triple the department's current space. The building project is currently the largest in Penn State’s capital plan and is expected to open in 2019.
