About Haywood Community College

Haywood Community College (HCC) is part of the North Carolina Community College System. It is an open-door institution with the primary goal of providing educational opportunities to Haywood County and the surrounding region. HCC's mission is to provide accessible, affordable, and high-quality education, workforce training, and lifelong learning.

Campus information

HCC's main campus is located in Clyde, NC. HCC has two satellite locations, the Regional High Technology Center, which houses most of HCC's technology programs, such as Computer Integrated Machining and Electronics Engineering Technology, and the West Waynesville Campus, which houses the CareerWorks Center and the Goodwill Career Connections. 

HCC also owns three teaching forests: the 320-acre Raymond J. Fowler Conservancy and Teaching Forest, the 54-acre John T. and Catherine R. Beaty Natural Resources Classroom, and the 328-acre Balsam Gap property. These teaching forests are primarily used by HCC's Fish and Wildlife and Forest Management programs.

HCC's campus includes a number of specialized facilities, including:

  • a 36,000 square foot "green" Creative Arts Building, used for programs in Fiber, Clay, Wood, and Jewelry; as well as for many community workshops and events.
  • a Nursing "sim lab" that uses robotic patients to simulate a variety of medical conditions so that Nursing students can prepare for their clinical experiences.
  • automotive facilities, used by both Autobody Repair and Automotive Systems programs.
  • an operational greenhouse used in HCC's Horticulture programs.

Haywood Community College’s Small Business Center is now located at 144 Industrial Park Drive, Waynesville. Situated beside the college’s Regional High Technology Center, the former Smoky Mountain Development Corporation location provides current and prospective small business owners easy access to the services offered by the Small Business Center. While HCC's main campus is located in Clyde, NC.


Haywood Community College Housing List is designed in order to enhance the quality of life for students, and develop support opportunities for student involvement within the community. HCC does not maintain or approve housing facilities; however, Student Success Services shares a list of area home owners about their rentals. Students may also check general bulletin boards in most buildings on campus for other housing and roommate opportunities.
