The Veterinary Medical Park (VMP) currently has 9 biosafety
buildings approved for work involving biosafety level 2. In the
past year, due to enhanced vigilance by the Office of Biosafety
regarding where investigators can perform this type of work, these
buildings are in increasing demand.
Therefore, in order to meet the needs of our customers in a fair
manner, the VMP is instituting a more structured reservation
- A reservation request (BSL-2
Housing Form) MUST be filled out and sent to our office either
by e-mail (DTaylor@cvm.tamu.edu
or MALeath@cvm.tamu.edu) or inter-campus mail. We will no
longer take phone call requests or verbal requests. This will
ensure that we and the investigator both know what the
investigators needs are and that the needs are appropriately
- Reservation forms can be accessed through the the link above or
under the 'Forms' section on the right of this page.
- To send a form by e-mail to DTaylor@cvm.tamu.edu
please call the Veterinary Medical Park at 979-845-5620.
- When filling out a reservation request form, the investigator
must provide the following:
- Approved AUP
- Approved IBC permit (procedures and forms can be found at
- Requested starting date
Note: Without these three items, we will not accept a
When these items are received by our office, we will place the
reservation request in the queue. When the next available
building(s) come open, we will contact the responsible person
listed on the request form and arrange an occupancy date. If the
investigator cannot utilize the building at that time, we will go
to the next reservation on the list.
Our goal at the VMP is to provide the best facilities and
support so you can carry out your research. If you have any
questions regarding reservations, please contact VMP at
