HCC Campus

The college's main campus is located in Clyde, NC and is a designated arboretum known for its stand of lofty oak trees and the beauty of its gardens. The Rhododendron and Dahlia Gardens are visited each year by area garden clubs and local residents and are a source of pride for the college.

The grounds often serve as an outdoor classroom for students in our Natural Resources programs. Students also have access to two other tracts of land—the 320-acre Raymond J. Fowler Conservancy and Teaching Forest and the 54-acre John T. and Catherine R. Beaty Natural Resources Classroom. 

The Joseph H. Nanney Regional High Technology Center (RHTC) is the home of the Advanced Machining Center, a state-of-the-art education center for advanced metal forming, machining up to and including 5-axis contours, and computer-aided design (CAD), manufacturing (CAM) and engineering (CAE). The center also serves as the home of the college's machining, electronics engineering technology, mechatronics engineering technology, industrial systems technology, and computer information systems programs; as well as providing meeting space for continuing education programming and community events.
