The Fred W. Beazley Portsmouth Campus encompasses 35 acres in the centrally located Victory Village area of Portsmouth, directly off Interstate 264 and Victory Boulevard. The campus includes four buildings, including the Portsmouth Campus Student Center, which offers views of the ample green space outside. The Quad, which includes a statue of TCC benefactor Fred W. Beazley, is an ideal gathering spot for students and faculty. The campus opened in 2010, replacing TCC’s founding campus in Suffolk, which opened in 1968.
