The Offices of Information Technology and of Operations are also located there, on the fourth floor.

In January 2012 the Institute expanded by 21,000 square feet taking over the top floor of 2 Constitution Center, just outside the Navy Yard and directly overlooking the USS Constitution, more commonly known as “Old Ironsides.” The addition includes new and expanded physical therapy labs, a 102-seat active learning classroom with state-of-the-art technology, the school's first dedicated research space, and lounge and study areas that students from nursing, physical therapy, and speech-language pathology share.

The Institute's space now exceeds 100,000 square feet – a 50% increase in the past decade.
