Location and Facilities

The campus of PVCC is located at the southwest corner of the intersection of Interstate 64 and State Route 20. Entrance to the college is from State Route 20 onto College Drive. The college occupies 114 acres in the foothill country of Albemarle County near Monticello.

The original building included more than 66,000 square feet of floor space. In 1982, an addition of 13,000 square feet expanded the library and other facilities. A 26,000 square foot addition in 1987 provided laboratory and classroom space for technical programs. Other facilities including a weight and fitness room, counseling office, student lounge, and faculty and staff lounge were added through a renovation project in 1987. A maintenance building was completed in 1993.

A 36,500 square foot humanities and social sciences building was occupied in the fall semester 1998. By action of the College Board, the building was named for V. Earl Dickinson, in honor of the state delegate whose support in the General Assembly made the building possible.

A statewide bond referendum passed in the fall of 2003 included a new science building for the college. The Keats Science Building was named to honor Theodore E. and Patt Hart Keats for their generous gift to PVCC in support of science and health programs and labs. The building opened on PVCC’s campus in time for the summer 2010 semester and enabled PVCC to address the growing demand for trained health care professionals in Central Virginia and provide state-of-the-art space for the sciences.

In April 2010, the College’s Division of Workforce Services began offering classes in PVCC’s newly renovated Stultz Center for Business and Career Development. The 9,000-square-foot Stultz Center for Business and Career Development, named in honor of the Stultz Foundation for their generous donation, houses five teaching spaces, a conference room and the division’s offices.

In August 2012, PVCC opened a center in Stanardsville, Virginia. The PVCC Eugene Giuseppe Center occupies the second floor of the Green County Library building and holds classrooms, labs, a community meeting room, and other facilities. The College began offering classes there in fall 2012.

In January 2013, PVCC also opened a center in downtown Charlottesville. PVCC is housed on the ground floor in the historic Jefferson School building. The College offers workforce programs at this facility and introduced a new associate degree program in culinary arts hosted there since spring 2013.
