Keiser University Breaks Ground on a New Building

Keiser University’s Melbourne campus is pleased to announce that construction has begun on a 29,850 square foot facility. The additional building, which will be adjacent to the current facility, will greatly improve the existing campus.

The current location is at 900 South Babcock Street in Melbourne and the estimated completion for the new building is October 2015.

Building an additional facility will provide the campus the ability to increase the program offerings and better accommodate students. The new building will be the home to a number of program offerings including Biomedical Sciences, Dietetics and Nutrition, Physical Therapy Assistant, and Sports Medicine and Fitness Technology programs.

“We are thrilled to be breaking ground on a 29,850 square foot building and look forward to expanding our program offerings to meet the needs of the community,” said Colleen Browne, Campus President. The Melbourne location was the second Keiser University campus opened back in 1989 and has been in the current location since 1998.

The new structure will have 25 rooms, including a new student break area, an auditorium with seating for 90, a computer lab and eight lecture rooms. The remaining 14 rooms will be labs dedicated to the new degree programs.
