The Department of Health and Kinesiology relocated to the Gilchrist Building

The college is expanding its footprint on the Texas A&M campus, as well as its health corridor on West Campus. Effective spring 2020, the Department of Health and Kinesiology moved to the 67,000-square-foot Gilchrist Building.

“While the department has been located on main campus for over 80 years, we are eager to have our departmental family in close proximity to facilitate collaborations and help us educate the next generation of students studying health education, kinesiology, sport management, and the physical education activity program,” said Dr. Melinda Sheffield-Moore, department head.

Formerly in the Blocker, Heldenfels and Heep Laboratory buildings on main campus, the department is now closer to its other buildings.
“We are excited about being on West Campus because it geographically positions us near the facilities of our other departmental colleagues in the Player Development Center-West Campus, the Physical Education Activity Program Building and the Human Clinical Research Facility,” Sheffield-Moore said.

The newly renovated Gilchrist Building features state- of-the-art classrooms, thoughtful research collaboration space, as well as both dry and wet labs. The large lecture halls, including a 130-seat space on the first floor, represents the classrooms of the future for Texas A&M. These instruction spaces have modern designs, high- end technology and flexible collaborative space.

See directions to the Gilchrist Building.
