In partnership with:

Transforming health sciences education from the ground up

DMU has been planning the medical and health sciences university of the future. The new campus, located on 88 acres in West Des Moines, will advance the educational transformation the University envisions.

8025 Grand Avenue will be our new home in 2023.


  • An environment for new-age learning

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

  • Bringing the DMU community together

    A diverse mix of open and enclosed collaboration spaces converge in the heart of the campus: an open, energizing learning commons and food service environment in which students, faculty and staff can connect, refresh and recharge.

  • A focus on health and wellbeing

    Wellness and recreation facilities allow students, faculty and staff to stay active and healthy. Trails and ponds provide opportunities for relaxation. The integrated student clinic provides access to care for students to maintain a well-balanced lifestyle. A discreet and private student counseling suite ensures students have access to mental health care.

  • With room to grow

    The 88-acre site gives the University space and flexibility to respond to future needs in health care and health care education. The new campus also will enable DMU to interact with and serve community members in a welcoming, accessible setting.
