This is a place that will serve our students. It's where engineering meets medicine. Innovation meets history. Big challenges meet bigger ideas.

IMPACT TO STUDENTS
Gallogly Hall, situated on the Engineering Quad between Felgar Hall and the ExxonMobil Lawrence G. Rawl Engineering Practice Facility, provides Stephenson School of Biomedical Engineering students and faculty with world-class biomedical engineering facilities to learn, study and research. The 75,500 square-foot building also benefits students throughout the Gallogly College of Engineering, housing the offices of the College's Diversity and Inclusion program, 10 classrooms and teaching labs, group meeting spaces, a maker's space, a rooftop terrace, and a large "living room".
All undergraduate students throughout the University taking chemistry through the College of Arts and Sciences also benefit from Gallogly Hall, with the second floor dedicated to bench chemistry, biology and undergraduate biomedical labs.
Biomedical Engineering continues to be an engineering discipline that attracts a diverse group of students, especially female students. More than 50 percent of the first Stephenson School of Biomedical Engineering underclass are female.
IMPACT TO OKLAHOMA
If faculty and students can be considered the vital organs of the Stephenson School of Biomedical Engineering, then collaborations are aptly the veins. The school's ongoing partnerships with other bioscience and medical entities are often cited as top reasons for its inevitable success.
The OU Health Sciences Center, Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation and the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology are less than 25 miles north of the school's home on the Norman campus, and a straight shot on I-35. The OU-Tulsa campus, University of Tulsa and the Laureate Institute for Brain Research are within a two-hour drive.
