CCAC North Campus

North Campus is located in McCandless, 12 miles north of Pittsburgh occupying one easily accessible 150,000 square foot facility. The campus houses an Innovation Lab for our Cybersecurity, Data Analytics, Multimedia Programming, Simulation and Gaming programs, a Virtual Reality lab, veteran's lounge, cafeteria, math caf (free math help), free tutoring, and learning commons (more free tutoring assistance!).

Additionally, the campus provides a privacy room for students needing quiet space for spiritual or medical reasons. Our library, not only boasting an expansive digital library, and video library, has become a go-to student study home for both quiet and collaborative learning spaces. We also provide a Health Fit center and a gymnasium, with basketball court, for students to work out stress during their free time. Our caf offers fresh, gluten-free and innovative food offerings along with the standard pizza and hoagie requests.
