Campus life

Diversity. Energy. Fun. Find them at TCC!

Student centers

Tidewater Community College is among a handful of 2-year schools in the nation to offer full-service student centers. You'll find food, student activities, fitness facilities, recreation and special events on every campus. It's not all fun and games. TCC's student centers foster an atmosphere of inclusiveness and community, promote student success and provide opportunities for collaboration and learning.

Community organizations are also welcome at the student centers. To learn how to reserve a space, visit the student centers' home pages.
