Welcome to The Medical and Health Sciences University of the Future
8025 Grand Avenue is the new home of Des Moines University. Located on 88 acres in West Des Moines, DMU’s state-of-the-art campus serves as the foundation for powerful, evolutionary trends in education and health care delivery.
The DMU Clinic continues to serve the Greater Des Moines community at 3200 Grand Avenue, providing valuable clinical experience for tomorrow’s health care heroes.
An Environment for New-Age Learning
Flexible environments allow for a mix of didactic, active-learning and small group work. Learning studios and laboratories are 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 connect, refresh and recharge.
A Focus on Health and Well-Being
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.
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 campus also enables DMU to interact with and serve community members in a welcoming, accessible setting.
