The University of St. Joseph this week said its board of trustees has approved a plan to relocate its graduate pharmacy program out of the XL Center in downtown Hartford to its main West Hartford campus.

The move will occur when the school’s lease at the XL Center expires in Aug. 2022, the university said.

USJ officials said the move comes as the school  is expanding its emphasis on interprofessional education, including USJ’s nursing, nutrition, physician assistant studies, health science, exercise science, counseling, public health, and social work programs at its West Hartford campus.

“The XL Center, in the heart of the city, has been a valued home for Pharmacy, but having the Pharmacy students and faculty on our West Hartford campus will enrich the [interprofessional education] experience for all of our students in health care,” said USJ President Rhona C. Free.

USJ first entered downtown Hartford in 2010, when it debuted its pharmacy program. 

It occupied 50,000 square feet at the XL Center, space that is adjoined to the Hartford 21 apartment complex. Northland Investment Corp. is the landlord. 

USJ said the relocation will give pharmacy students access to state-of-the-art facilities built on its main campus in the last four years for the nursing and physician assistant studies programs.
