The New Roxbury Community College (RCC) is now open! The College is currently undergoing $72.5 million in renovations; and, our fully-renovated Media Arts Center, new Student Commons, and new Health Sciences Building opened in September 2017. In January 2018, the second floor of our Academic Building will re-open. It now includes a new Library, Academic Support Center and Testing Center.

While RCC’s facilities are new, what makes us great hasn’t changed.

Roxbury Community College is a diverse, forward-thinking, student-centered and inclusive community college, located in the heart of Boston. We’re steps away from Mission Hill and Dudley Square, and minutes away from Fenway and the Longwood Medical Area. There’s no better place to study and learn than RCC.

We have 15+ student organizations which regularly plan events, including the International Multicultural Club, the RCC Chapter of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Club (ASBMB), the Video/Audio Club, and many more. Our Student Government Association (SGA) regularly holds events, as does the Phi Theta Kappa honor society. There’s also a full calendar of events at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center and the Media Arts Center.

At RCC, our faculty and staff are committed to your success. Our small class sizes guarantee that your teachers will have the time needed to provide you with personalized support and guidance. Our faculty regularly meets with students outside of the classroom, to provide both personal and academic advice. We have programs and offices dedicated to providing you with support on personal matters, so that you never feel alone. You’re more than just a number at RCC: you’re an important and valuable part of our community.
