Gainesville Campus

Donation of five acres of land by William T. Bonner made possible the move of the main college campus from GHS to its present site in 1959. Subsequent acquisitions of land have increased the size of the campus to more than 132 acres. It is situated in the southwest section of Gainesville on U.S. Highway 51, about one mile from downtown.

Buildings-Since 1959, NCTC's Gainesville Campus has maintained a steady program of physical growth to meet the needs of its expanding program offerings. Its physical plant is currently valued at $36.1 million. Modern facilities now in operation include a total of 20 separate buildings. In addition to classrooms, campus buildings contain learning laboratories, shop facilities for technical programs, Field House, Student Activities Center, Bookstore, cafeteria/snack bar and even a Planetarium, in addition to such outdoor facilities as tennis courts, intramural playing fields and a baseball/softball field complex.

We are especially proud of our facilities for both the visual and performing arts, including our Visual Arts Center with well-appointed studio spaces for painting, sculpture, ceramics and jewelry making. There's even a foundry and welding/metalwork lab. Our state-of-the-art First State Bank Center for the Performing Arts is one of the region's finest performance venues for drama, dance and music, and the facility also contains excellent instructional and rehearsal spaces for all these programs.

The newest building on campus is our modern and well-equipped Career & Technology Center where programs ranging from welding and HVAC to marine motor repair are offered, as well as a wide range of Lifelong Learning courses and programs.

The college also maintains a 110-acre Experimental Farm and Beef Cattle Evaluation Center near Gainesville, as well as an Equine Center adjacent to the main campus with facilities including stables, barns, indoor and outdoor arenas, paddocks and pasture.
