West Fresno Center Opens and Other Fall '23 News

Jul 21, 2023


Exciting news for the beginning of the Fresno City College Fall semester on August 7.  The new West Fresno Center at 600 E. Church Ave. (Church and Walnut) will open for business.

Two Open Houses will be held for the public on Friday, August 4 and Saturday, August 5. Guests are asked to enter at the South Walnut entrance to access parking. The Sikh community of Fresno will provide refreshments.

Friday, August 4: 4:00 – 6:00 PM
Saturday, August 5: 9:00 AM – 12 PM

The beautiful new West Fresno Center sits on 39 acres with 110,000 square feet of instructional space. The Academic Building is the first of two buildings to open. The Advanced Transportation Center will open in January 2024.

The $86.5 million project is funded by $70 million from facilities bonds and $16.5 million allocated by the City of Fresno from the Transformative Climate Community (TCC) program. TCC funding assists disadvantaged communities with neighborhood projects that provide local economic, environmental, and health benefits while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, the City of Fresno is providing $11 million in off-site improvements.

The new center will be an open campus with a park-like setting including bicycle and pedestrian paths. This park setting will also include an urban forest and bio-retention system to promote groundwater recharge. A central feature of the campus will be the central plaza and water feature. The water feature will include an integrated community-inspired art piece. 

The new center will provide the West Fresno community with a complete college center offering diverse educational opportunities, from transferable college credits to career technology courses. In addition to general education classes, students can study social justice, public health, and medical assisting, plus take pre-requisites for nursing and other allied health programs. The Advanced Transportation component will consolidate all automotive programs.
