The College of Pharmacy is normally open Mondays-Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Mountain Standard Time). The University of Arizona closes for several days from the end of December until early January, and observes several holidays throughout the year, including Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veterans Day and Thanksgiving.

To find us

The main operations of the College of Pharmacy are part of the University of Arizona Health Sciences complex on the campus of the University of Arizona in Tucson. It is in two buildings on the south end of the health sciences complex, the College of Pharmacy-Skaggs Building west of the College of Nursing and the Roy P. Drachman Hall, site of both the College of Pharmacy and the public health college.

Reporters often find it easiest to park on the street or parking lot at the intersection of Martin Avenue and Mabel Street. Mabel Street is the street just south of the main entrance to Banner-University Medical Center Tucson, intersecting with Campbell Avenue. Either College of Pharmacy building is a short walk from this intersection.

For more information on locating the College of Pharmacy, see Directions to the College.
