Construction on the new UGA Veterinary Medical Center (VMC) started in March 2013. The new campus, located nearly three miles east of the current location at the intersection of College Station and Barnett Shoals roads, took approximately two years to complete.

The VMC campus features five buildings that will encompass a little over 300,000 square feet. The buildings will include:

  • Veterinary Teaching Hospital housing all of the small animal service areas, clinical pathology, equine and food animal service areas
  • Veterinary Education Center with classrooms, an auditorium, and seminar/dining space
  • Covered outdoor arena for equine performance evaluation
  • Field Services building
  • Large animal isolation barn
