Building UB: Our Physical Plan

Farber Hall Renovations

The new Behling Simulation Center is among the renovations in Farber Hall that meet immediate and pressing needs for high quality research space for the health sciences.

Major renovations to Farber Hall have been made to provide badly needed new research space for the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and others. The approximately $10.2 million project has established the Behling Simulation Center on the fourth floor, as well as research laboratories on the third floor. Work also included new heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical and communications infrastructure, as well as interior architecture and finishes. A Grand Opening ceremony was held in September 2011. The renovations are critical to the ability of the health sciences schools to continue recruiting high-quality faculty, even as plans are developed for moving the health sciences to our Downtown campus.
