Yale University officials say they will be moving the School of Nursing out of New Haven to its campus in West Haven and Orange, The Associated Press reports.
The school announced Thursday that the move will take place in the summer of next year and involve all the 450 students, administrators and faculty at the current building on Church Street South. They'll be relocated to Yale's 136-acre West Campus just off Interstate 95.
Nursing School Dean Margaret Grey told the New Haven Register that the move is a good opportunity for the school to increase and upgrade teaching space. The school will be moving into the former administrative headquarters of Bayer Corp.
The school will be the first major Yale program relocated to West Campus and will double the number of people there.
