Gainesville Campus

Our Main Campus

The Gainesville campus of NCTC is its main campus, serving as home to the central administration and governing board. The main campus serves all of Cooke County, of which Gainesville, Texas is the county seat and largest city. In its present location since 1960, the college district was created as a separate entity from the local public school district. Both the Gainesville and Corinth campuses are situated along the "Interstate 35 Corridor" that extends from the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex northward through Lewisville, Denton and points north along the route to Oklahoma City.

About the Campus

The main campus is situated on a 110-acre tract about two miles from downtown Gainesville on West California Street (U.S. 51). It is just eight miles from the Red River, which separates the Lone Star and Sooner states, and NCTC draws many students from southern Oklahoma. In fact, because our college district borders this neighboring state, we allow qualified Oklahoma residents attending NCTC to pay in-state tuition rates!
