The Centennial Biomedical Campus is 180 acres of property owned and operated by North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA. It is located five minutes west of the NC State’s main campus and is considered part of Centennial Campus, the university’s research and educational campus footprint.

Centennial Biomedical Campus is home to NC State’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Ranked 5th among the nation's 28 colleges of veterinary medicine in the current (2007) listing by U.S. News & World Report, the College of Veterinary Medicine offers graduate courses three departments — Clinical Sciences, Molecular Biomedical Sciences, and Population Health & Pathobiology. In addition, the College focuses on six specific program areas: Companion Animal Medicine, Food Supply Medicine, Biomedical Research, Ecosystem Health, Equine Medicine, and Animal Welfare.

The Centennial Biomedical Campus also houses the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, a major referral center for veterinarians from throughout the Southeast, where more than 20,000 animals a year are treated.

In early 2011, the Randall B. Terry, Jr. Companion Animal Veterinary Medical Center is expected to open. The Terry Center will more than double the size of the current hospital. Also located on campus is the 100,000-square foot CVM Research Building, which holds the Center for Comparative Medicine and Translational Research and houses research activities in genomic sciences, gene therapy, vaccine development, creation of diagnostic tests, new cancer immuno-therapy, and genetic research to prevent inherited and acquired diseases in livestock and comparative animals.

Future plans call for the 47,500 square-foot Flexible Biosciences Lab Building (or Flex Building), which will hold “wet lab” space for corporate and institutional tenants who intend to collaborate with NC State researchers.
