Center for Allied Health Education

About

Anticipated opening in 2021!

During the 2018 legislative session, state legislators appropriated funding for the construction of the new Center for Allied Health Education, formerly known as the Medical Mile Health Science Center, at the Downtown Campus.

The $43.7M project features the demolition of a 1970s-era West Annex to make way for a modern learning facility that will house the college’s Allied Health programs, clinics, learning labs and other student spaces.

The 18-month to two-year project is anticipated to begin in mid-August, and will have an impact on parking at the Downtown Campus.

Parking tips

If you commute to the Downtown Campus, please give yourself plenty of time to find a parking spot. Preparation is key, as parking may be hectic—especially when Fall Quarter begins.

The following information is important to review, as this will affect several parking areas for both students and employees.

Downtown Campus parking maps

As the project progresses, some parking areas will become available, but many will not. For example, rooftop parking on the East Annex will be available following the completion of a new parking ramp for access. Student and employee commuters can also overflow onto available street parking.

Shuttle Service

More shuttle pick up and drop off times added!

To help offset the loss of parking spaces because of the construction, the college will have two free shuttles* to and from Central/Mohler Campus, 2320 S. 19th Street. The shuttles will be dedicated to moving students and employees from Central/Mohler Campus to Downtown Campus in the morning and return them in the afternoon, Monday through Friday.

Students and employees must show college identification in order to use this service.

*The shuttle does not run when the college is closed or when classes are not in session. See dates here.

Carpooling

Carpooling is a flexible and convenient way to commute. Carpoolers save time and money, allows for HOV lane travel, and creates less traffic congestion for the campus. Even if it isn’t a co-worker someone working in the same area might make a great carpool fit. You can find a ride through RideshareOnline.com. If you can’t find a rider in your area, consider meeting at a Park and Ride.

You can also vanpool! A vanpool is a group of 5-15 sharing the ride in a van provided by a transit agency. Learn more about joining a vanpool.
