In the fall of 2016, the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA will inaugurate a new medical-education building that will change the face of the school’s teaching and learning efforts. This new facility — recently named Geffen Hall — will allow the medical school to expand its educational programs and keep pace with emerging technologies.

“It could not be more fitting that this state-of-the-art facility will bear the name of David Geffen, who has given so generously to our David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and who established the David Geffen Medical Scholarships, allowing a significant number of medical students in each class to graduate debt free,” said Dr. John C. Mazziotta (RES ’81, FEL ’83), vice chancellor for UCLA Health Sciences and CEO of UCLA Health. “Thanks to David Geffen’s generosity, UCLA medical students and faculty are the recipients of more than $300 million in charitable giving.”

Located at the intersection of Le Conte and Tiverton Avenues, the new 110,000-square-foot facility will feature an open, welcoming layout. Geffen Hall was designed to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and leverage technology, and it will be among the most sustainable buildings on campus.

The $120-million Geffen Hall offers premier naming opportunities within the facility.
