Laboratory Animal Center of Zhejiang University is located in the Zijingang campus as an important public service platform. The current four-story building has an area of 7500-squaremeter, including opens /barriers animal rearing rooms and experimental facilities. It can be used for the care and feeding of animals (rats, mice, guinea pigs, rabbits, miniature pigs, dogs, monkeys etc.) and laboratory services. It also can provide all kinds of experimental research and analytical testing platform, such as comparative medicine, basic research of experimental animal and animal's quality testing etc. Transgenic Animal Laboratory and GLP laboratory (has passed the National Certification) are features of the center. Currently multiple experiments can be completed within the center.

The main function of the center are experimental animals teaching, training, production and supply, animal experiments and scientific research. It also provides a variety of qualified experimental animals on-campus and off-campus. In line with national standards of facilities mission, the center accepts animals rearing and experiments, and carry out a variety of animal research and basic research. In recent years, the introduction of transgenic mice has some characteristics of easy to carry infectious diseases. With the popularization and application of transgenic mice, the center launched the introduction of transgenic mice, isolation and quarantine, microbiological quality testing, biological purification and conservation etc.
