A world of opportunity in your backyard

With this historic grand opening, the Southeast Campus will join Sylvania, Rock Creek, and Cascade as PCC’s fourth comprehensive campus. With full academic and support services and an expanded 18-acre campus, you’ll be able to take all classes required to earn an associate’s degree right in your neighborhood—without having to travel to different PCC location.

The expanded campus includes two new, state-of-the-art buildings: The Student Commons building complete with bookstore, classrooms, labs and student services; and a bright new Library, where you can find student learning and tutoring centers, classrooms and sunny study areas.

The new and updated facilities at the Southeast Campus are thanks to an investment from the 2008 voter-approved bond measure.
