Visiting PVM

The Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine (PVM) is housed in Lynn Hall, which contains the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, classrooms, the Veterinary Medical Library, and offices. Unless attending a public event, visitors must have a prior appointment.

Student-led tours are offered throughout the year for prospective students as well as interested groups and individuals. The Veterinary Teaching Hospital is an active, working hospital where patients are undergoing surgical and medical treatment and procedures. Therefore, tours are observational only. Tours do not routinely involve seeing or interacting with animals.
