Pasadena City College has been an educational leader for the San Gabriel Valley for more than 90 years. As it approaches the beginning of its second century of service to our region, the college is undertaking a review of the facilities required to achieve the goals outlined in its educational master plan.


The Centennial Facilities Master Plan is intended to guide decisions on the optimal usage of college buildings and facilities at its main campus on Colorado Boulevard and other locations throughout the district. Through a process spanning more than 18 months, members of the PCC community - including students, faculty, staff, members of governance groups, and our friends and neighbors - have come together to provide input on the college's priorities for the next 20 to 30 years and identify the facilities improvements required to achieve them.

As a guide for future decisions, the master planning document will not contain detailed construction proposals or program allocations. Rather, the process will identify carefully considered renovations, retrofits, and new construction that will transform our campus for its next century of educating our community, while providing much needed space for health sciences, STEM-related fields, social sciences, student services, and many other areas.
