TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rasmussen University, a regionally accredited private university, today announced the relocation and opening of its brand-new Tampa/Brandon campus. Classes at the new campus, located at 330 Brandon Town Center Drive in Brandon, Fla., begin July 6. This campus evolution enables the University to offer students greater access to learning opportunities and provide adequate space for a growing student population, faculty and staff. It is also the second Rasmussen University campus upgrade in the Tampa Bay area this year. In January, Rasmussen began serving students at its new Central Pasco campus.
“The Rasmussen University Tampa/Brandon campus has grown to one of the largest Rasmussen campuses, creating a need for more classroom space, nursing and health sciences labs, and simulation equipment as well as faculty and staff space. Our nursing student population alone has grown nearly 240 percent over the past five years,” said Jamie Sperling, campus director, Rasmussen University – Tampa/Brandon. “We’re excited to announce the relocation and opening of our new Tampa/Brandon campus, which boasts innovative features to provide a unique learning environment and access to dynamic curriculum designed to prepare students for future career success.”
With more than 44,000 square feet, the new Tampa/Brandon campus is the second-largest campus footprint in Rasmussen history, right behind the new Central Pasco campus. The new facility includes large classrooms with A/V equipment, a high-tech Simulation Center, virtual simulation classroom, wellness room and new health sciences and nursing labs. Staff and students will also have access to expanded offices, a lounge and quiet commons spaces, staff area, debrief rooms, board room and study spaces.
“The majority of residential students enrolled at Rasmussen University – Tampa/Brandon are health sciences and nursing students,” said Sperling. “To continue to evolve as a pioneer in the field of career-focused education, we’ve upgraded our health sciences and nursing learning environments with new, larger classrooms and labs, including a Simulation Center with new equipment and technology. Non-health sciences and nursing students also have access to the new classrooms and expanded student lounge, computer labs and study spaces.”
The new facility is just five miles from the former Tampa/Brandon campus, which first began serving students in the Tampa Bay area in 2010. The new site at Brandon Town Center is a high-traffic location with convenient access from Interstate 75. The Rasmussen community also has access to shops, nearby restaurants and other resources that are within walking distance.
