The new Miami University animal facility was completed in 2009. This facility serves the biological sciences and other members of the university research community.

The facility is located in the new Psychology building. It is approximately 13,000 square feet plus support space. The state of the art facility includes transgenic suites, 2 surgical rooms and adjacent treatment and prep areas, conventional animal rooms, a separate wing housing wild caught species, and 2500 square feet of aquatics facilities. The aquatics area consists of 3 test rooms, 2 laboratories and 2 large culture rooms. The cage wash area contains a rack and cage washer, tunnel washer, as well as a pass through autoclave. The staff includes 6 full time employees plus student labor.

When facility personnel will be held responsible for feeding and watering animals, if animals are moved to a new room, the facility director or the director's representative must be notified by email. In addition, it would be wise to leave a conspicuous written note at both the original and new locations with any special instructions.
