Campus Facilities

Located in the heart of downtown, Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, provides students and trainees with access to an exceptional breadth of learning facilities. Mayo Clinic's Rochester campus has more medical and research space in one location than any place else in the country — 11.5 million square feet.

Clinical areas


Patient care activity in downtown Rochester is centered around the Mayo and Gonda buildings, the Richard O. Jacobson Building, and Mayo Clinic Hospital, Methodist Campus, all of which are connected by pedestrian subways and skyways. These facilities make up the core of Mayo Clinic's downtown clinical practice facilities.
