DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A Des Moines medical school has bought land in West Des Moines and intends to move to the suburban site.

Des Moines University announced Monday in a news release that it planned to move the campus to a 90-acre site on the southern edge of West Des Moines.

The private university has been at its current 24-acre site, in a largely residential area just west of downtown, since 1972. The school didn’t provide a timeline for the move.

The university has recently been in a dispute with neighbors over plans to add parking spaces and a generator.
