When students return for classes at WCTC this fall, they will be welcomed to new and updated spaces as multiple upgrades and renovations took place inside buildings and on campus grounds to improve the overall student experience. Additionally, some offices relocated to different areas of campus.

Campus parking lots

  • Parking lots 2 through 6 on the north side of campus, which service those who work and attend class in the A, B and L buildings, were reconfigured to add approximately 126 stalls. The new design uses the same footprint as the previous lots, but with a more efficient use of space.

Building renovations

  • A Building – Renovations included the creation of a new classroom space and the Certified Nursing Assistant Lab. Faculty and staff offices, along with the food store, moved from the lower to the upper level.

     

  • B Building – Construction began adjacent to the Service Desk for a new WCTC Bookstore space, which will move out of the K Building in fall. The new bookstore includes the TechEx Center, and it will be centrally located within the College, near the Student Enrichment Center. The vacated space within the K Building will be remodeled for classrooms in the coming months.

     

  • College Center (C Building)

    • The Hub underwent extensive renovations to expand the kitchen and serving space, and upgrade dining, kitchen and food preparation areas.

       

    • Student Development Offices, adjacent to the dining area, were affected by the HUB expansion and were also remodeled. The Multi-Cultural Resource Center will also be relocated to the first floor near the Hub.

       

    • The Career Center, which was located in the Workforce Development Center, relocated to the College Center, room C-012.

       

    • The Campus Security Office moved from the lower level of the College Center to the second floor, and is now located in room C-222.

       

  • G Building – The Transportation (Diesel) Lab was renovated to accommodate program expansion.

  • H Building – Renovations were made to Central Service classrooms, a lab area and conference room to provide modern learning spaces.

  • I Building – Classroom space within the Integrated Manufacturing Center was renovated to create a new fabrication lab to be used by students in manufacturing programs.

Campus-wide updates

Throughout the main campus, many smaller projects were completed during the summer months, including concrete and asphalt repair, door and window replacements, electronic door access expansion, and updates to electronic interior and exterior signage. Construction projects were also completed at the Waukesha campus, including a roof replacement, upgrades to electronic doors and fire alarm replacements.
