Students can stay on campus between classes — taking advantage of comfortable and quiet places to study, whether in private study rooms or in open group spaces.

As a neighborhood-based center, Southeast reflects the cultural diversity of the area and promotes a strong sense of community and community connections — bolstered by student leaders, PCC clubs and SEC President Jessica Howard.

The new campus quad is about 56,000 square feet, which is larger than Pioneer Courthouse Square in Downtown Portland.

Thanks to the bond measure passed by voters in 2008, the Southeast Campus has more than doubled its size from 94,000 to 200,000 square feet and expanded its class offerings, allowing students to complete an associate or transfer degree without traveling to another campus. A rich blend of culture is reflected in the community Southeast Campus serves, including a growing number of Vietnamese, Chinese, Korean, Latino, Russian and Ukrainian families. Despite the expansion, the center maintains a small campus feel with close connections to local neighborhoods and businesses.
