The Monroe County Community College Student Handbook is divided into four primary sections to help you quickly find the information you need to make your journey at MCCC the best it can be! 

We encourage you to explore the MCCC Student Handbook to familiarize yourself with these resources and information, and return to it as needed for detailed instructions or information as needed during your time as a Husky.

The Campbell Learning Resources Center, named for MCCC’s first president, Dr. Ronald Campbell, is the focal point of the campus. This two-story building contains classrooms, faculty offices and the necessary space to house library facilities for a collection of more than 50,000 volumes and 143 periodical subscriptions, as well as electronic access to 60 databases. (Note: The Campbell Learning Resources Center is currently under renovation. Most of the services and resources of the building are now temporarily relocated in Founders Hall.)

The Audrey M. Warrick Student Services/ Administration Building provides dining facilities, a student lounge and recreation area, and a bookstore. In addition, this facility houses four community-use conference rooms, an art room and a beautiful courtyard. Student Government conducts its activities from this facility. The Admissions and Guidance Office and other administrative and general offices are also located in this building. 

The Career Technology Center houses programs related to applied sciences and engineering technology curricula. It provides infrastructure to support state-of-the-art classrooms and lab space required to deliver instruction and skills necessary to secure high-growth, high-demand and high-paying jobs. A combination of sustainable systems has been integrated into the design of the facility that is incorporated into the curriculum. The building serves as a learning laboratory for students in applied science and engineering technology fields. 

The Career Technology Center was built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Standards and features state-of-the-art lab space, a geothermal system, Applied Science and Engineering Technology Division and faculty offices, a computer classroom and labs for all of the following areas: Automation, Automotive, Construction, Electronics, Manufacturing, Materials, Mechanical Design, Metrology, Renewable Energy, Nuclear Energy and Welding.

Founders Hall, which opened in 2020, is the result of a renovation of the former East and West Technology buildings. The renovated facility has 7,600 more square feet of space for state-of-the-art learning environments and enhanced student services.

It features a large academic commons area that runs through the main corridor between the two main entrances. Within that academic commons area are multiple small group study and collaborative seating areas. Lining the main corridor are three private study rooms, a large open computer space, an open work area complete with two office areas and a conference room, and an open tutoring space. The east wing houses the college’s Graphic Design, Art and Computer Information Systems programs, as well as five computer classrooms, an art studio, two art classrooms, two workrooms, multiple faculty offices, an active learning classroom, a small seminar classroom, one regular classroom that can be modified into an active learning classroom and a vending area.

The Gerald Welch Health Education Building is named for MCCC’s second president and located on the north end of campus. It houses the Practical Nursing, Registered Nursing, Certified Nurse Aide, PN to RN Option and Certified Nurse Aide programs and laboratories. It also is home to MCCC’s physical education courses. 

The office suite for the Health Sciences Division office is located off the entrance to the facility. The Gerald Welch Health Education Building also features a large multi-purpose room/gymnasium, dance-aerobics room and a fitness center.

The La-Z-Boy Center provides exciting opportunities for students and the community and is flexible enough to respond to three equally important needs – cultural arts programming, customized training for business and industry, and unparalleled space for community activities and conferences.  

By virtue of its technical attributes and scaled size, the 575-seat Meyer Theater within the La-Z-Boy Center permits for a broad range of performances – from comedic to musical to theatrical and more – that require high-end lighting, sound production, set design and staging.

The Life Sciences Building, located across the mall from the technology buildings, contains offices, the student newspaper, and laboratories and classrooms related to the physical and natural sciences. It is also home to the college’s Early Childhood Education and Teacher Paraprofessional programs.  The building also contains two small, auditorium-type lecture halls and a climate-controlled greenhouse. A 2,500-square foot student collaborative space for individual and group study is also available in the Life Sciences Building.

MCCC uses a text, phone, email emergency alert system in the rare instance of a need to close the college. It is highly recommended students register for this important Emergency Alert service.

In accordance with federal regulations set forth by the Higher Education Act of 1965, certain student consumer information must be made available to all students at Monroe County Community College on the Student Consumer Information page of the college's website.
