The most important ingredients in the success of the Rocky Mountain Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (RMCOEH) are the determination, talent, and teamwork displayed by our students and faculty, whose efforts have enabled us to thrive and grow for more than 40 years.

But also indispensable is the first-rate learning, teaching, and work environment RMCOEH is proud to offer. Our facilities help us ensure students gain the tools they need to succeed in their studies, as well as in their careers.


In 2021, RMCOEH moved from Research Park on the University of Utah’s main campus to a brand new facility in downtown Salt Lake City. Our modern headquarters is designed to jointly serve the University of Utah and Weber State University components of the center and foster interdisciplinary collaboration among all of our programs. It is also conveniently located to both the engineering and mining programs at the University of Utah. At 22,000 square feet, more than twice as large as our previous home, the space allows us to look toward the future: It offers room for our programs to grow and make an even bigger impact on workers and businesses. 

The location, which was renovated with the help of a $1.15 million donation from WCF Insurance, is equipped with everything from offices and touchdown space for faculty, students, and staff to a kitchen and dining area. But the standout features are three classrooms — with respective capacities of 80, 30, and 15 people — equipped with technology for hybrid courses; laboratories outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment; space for our research teams; and multiple medical examination rooms.


RMCOEH’s programs boast labs that provide our students with hands-on training and allow our faculty and students to perform research that is charting new territory in occupational and environmental health and safety. Some labs are located at our headquarters, while others are housed on the University of Utah main campus and at Weber State University.
