Campus Construction
Main Campus Signage Update – We're Getting a New Look!

The expected date to complete the transformation of our campus signs is January of 2014.  We anticipate that by the time students return to classes in January, we will have a new look for our Main Campus. The new signs will have a dark bronze metallic background with aluminum accents, white lettering, and a green branding stripe. These changes will include:

  • External, large and durable campus maps in five strategic places on Main Campus. These maps will include listings of all services, locations for help phones, information desks, buildings, parking areas, and more.
  • Every building will have a prominent number displayed on the building.
  • Every parking lot will have a prominent letter displayed on the area entrance.
  • We will create a new visitor parking area next to the ERC with around 15 spaces to allow visitors to come to campus and park for 30 minutes, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. without a permit.

Orange County Campus

Orange County Construction 1The flagship building for the Orange County Campus of Durham Technical Community College opened its doors in 2008. The two-story centerpiece building totals 40,000 square feet. The new campus building houses 22 instructional spaces, including multi-purpose rooms, computer labs and special purpose science labs, as well as flex space which could be used for vocational or trades classes. The facility also includes green building features such as "daylighting," using aluminum light shelves, photovoltaic systems, solar-assisted domestic water heating, rainwater collection and reuse, waterless urinals, and operable window vents in all classroom areas, all of which will help the building be more energy efficient and ecologically friendly. The campus has the capacity for four more buildings.

Phail Wynn, Jr. Student Services Center
