Adelphi University’s Nexus Building, which opened in the fall of 2016, is the inspiring new home of our College of Nursing and Public Health and a thriving center for student services, admissions and alumni outreach. The $76 million, 100,000 square-foot building earned recognition from the American Institute of Architects for its innovative design—a visual representation of Adelphi’s commitment to community, collaboration and academic excellence.
Nexus’ airy, open floor plan promotes student interaction—both academic and social. Nexus is also a welcoming gathering space for prospective families who visit our admissions office and alumni who access our advancement office. The building’s ultramodern classrooms and simulation labs prepare nursing students for careers in a variety of settings—from a high-tech medical center to a patient’s room at home.
For more than 60 years, Adelphi has set the stage for excellence in nursing education. We opened our nursing program in 1943, and, in 1944, Eleanor Roosevelt dedicated our first buildings for nursing students. With the Nexus Building, Adelphi continues to be a pacesetter.
