Construction Updates

Construction Overview

In April 2016, Roxbury Community College formally celebrated the start of our $72,500,000 campus construction project, funded by the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM). This project is scheduled to run from August 8, 2016 - Summer 2018. The renovations planned for our campus will address the infrastructure updates required for the College's long-term success. Both Roxbury Community College and our greater community will benefit from these campus-wide projects.

The construction project includes new elevators in Buildings 1-4. Building 1 (the Media Arts Center) will be equipped with a new cooling tower, and a new HVAC system. New lavatories will be installed on the 1st floor, and the stage will become handicap-accessible. Each floor of Building 3 will undergo renovations, and the building will be equipped with a new student common area, a new library, a new bookstore, a new academic support center, and upgraded science laboratories. Building 4 will be fully renovated and equipped with a new Allied Health Center, and a new Timothy Smith Community Computer Center. The renovations also include a campus-wide energy project, which comprises new lighting fixtures, a new campus-wide climate control system, and a solar canopy installation in Parking Lot 1.

During this construction period, we will continue to serve the community with rental space.  To formally request use of space at RCC, fill out the application form and return it to
