School of Public Health

1415 Washington Heights, Ann Arbor, MI 48109

Since 1941, the U-M School of Public Health has been pursuing a healthier, more equitable world through education, research, and action. The U-M SPH building complex stands just a short walk from U-M's schools of medicine, business, public policy, law, and nursing, and serves as both literal and metaphorical crossroads. The seven-story, 125,000-square-foot facility house more than 8,000 square feet of classroom space, plus conference rooms and labs, and integrates with two other SPH buildings, creating a self-contained complex that houses the school's varied research, teaching, and service programs.
