Parnassus Research and Academic Building (PRAB)

A new state-of-the-art Parnassus Research and Academic Building (PRAB) is under construction on the Parnassus Heights campus. PRAB will be a new home for the School of Nursing, and have an expanded education space, and space for multiple health and science disciplines. The new building will encourage collaboration and support UCSF staying at the cutting edge of discovery, learning and care.

There are three major projects on the Parnassus Heights campus, including the New Hospital at Parnasssus Heights on the east side of campus.

The building also will serve as temporary spaces for research and academic groups as the campus undergoes several major improvements for the Comprehensive Parnassus Heights Plan (CPHP) through 2030. Learn more about the PRAB as part of the plan.

Hard demolition and finalizing the designs for the new building are underway. The project will also include site improvements to create a more welcoming environment on the west side of the campus.
