Founded in 1963, Manchester Community College moved into its new facilities on the east end of its 160-acre, heavily-wooded campus in 1971. The East Campus, as it became known, comprised thirteen small single-story modular buildings organized around a central outdoor community space. Completion of the Lowe Student Services Center in 1984 provided space for both the consolidation and the expansion of the college; however, its location at the center of the property, and uphill from the East Campus, essentially created two separate campuses. The addition of the Learning Resource Center in 2000; the Arts, Sciences, and Technology Center in 2003; and Great Path Academy in 2009, coupled with the razing of the East Campus that same year, once again created a centralized campus.
The MCC campus of today is characterized by exciting indoor facilities, unique campus spaces, memorable vistas, and extensive natural resources. Nestled among undeveloped natural areas, playing fields, walking and biking trails, and open gathering spaces, the college buildings both command the space and flow neatly into the surrounding landscape. The LRC and AST are placed to the south of the Lowe Student Services Center in a way that flatters Lowe by carving out a sweeping oval courtyard among the three. The courtyard is the heart of the campus — a legible, strong space animated by a two-story glass gallery and landscaped with shady trees. On the east end of the campus buildings, Great Path Academy creates a second gateway to the college, echoing the architecture of the earlier construction.
Located at Great Path, Manchester, Connecticut.
