Highland Campus

The Highland Campus is massive, and it’s easy to feel lost. (Trust us, we get lost in here, too.) But no worries! There’s always faculty, staff, or a police officer nearby who can assist you.

Here are some helpful tips on navigating Highland.

Building 1000 is where most of the basic courses are taught, like Government, English, and the hard sciences. Building 1000 is also home to most student support services, like Financial Aid, Registration, and tutoring. If you’re looking to meet other students or join a club, Student Life is the place to go. Did you know that Building 1000 used to be a JC Penney? Crazy, right.

Building 2000 is where many of our specialized programs exist, like Nursing, Architecture & Engineering, and Manufacturing. If you’re into the fine arts, you’ll likely find Building 4000 to be your home away from home.

Highland takes pride in showcasing students’ work and providing comfortable spaces to enjoy your time outside of class. As you navigate around campus, you’ll see all sorts of multi-media artwork and projects created by students just like yourself. Take a seat at any number of open spaces between classes to relax, study, or socialize.

If you’re feeling hungry, there are vending machines on the lower level of each building; the book store in Building 4000 has a variety of snack foods; and the Culinary department in Building 2000 sells breakfast and lunch items prepared by students.

Still not sure where to begin? Touch base with Dean of Students Olga Eckert in Building 1000 or any member of the Campus Management team in Building 2000 for guidance along your education journey.
