New Learning Commons and Residence Hall Opening in 2020 at Whatcom Community College


Whatcom Community College: The Phyllis and Charles Self Learning Commons is more than bricks and mortar – designed for inspiration, learning, persistence and success

Services within WCC’s Learning Commons will engage students through tutoring, multi-media resources, quiet and collaborative (loud!) study spaces, and tools to conduct their own thoughtful research. These activities encourage critical thinking and creativity - crucial skills as students prepare for a successful career. Active engagement with academic resources in a space filled with natural light and designed for productive interactions will inspire students to learn, persist, and succeed.

Construction of the College’s first student residence hall also began in 2018. The 89,000-square-foot building will provide affordable housing to about 230 students. The facility will also expand opportunities for Whatcom’s international program, as well as be a destination for out-of-state students interested in our cybersecurity, healthcare and business programs. The residence hall will also offer housing/accommodations to prospective summer groups.

Construction on both buildings will be complete in 2020.
