A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:

South Seattle Community College serves metropolitan Seattle and its surrounding communities. The main campus, located in West Seattle, has been in operation since 1970. The main campus is located on an 87-acre site that houses twenty-eight permanent facilities that range in size from 1,378 GSF to 58,305 GSF. Twenty of the permanent facilities are considered instructional/academic facilities, six are multi-use facilities that include administrative and student support functions, and two are maintenance and storage facilities.

The college also operates the Georgetown Campus on East Marginal Way and the New Holly learning center on Beacon Hill in southeast Seattle. Georgetown campus is an 11.35-acre site that houses four facilities ranging in size from 13,400 GSF to 32,712 GSF. All of the facilities are considered instructional facilities, and one also houses administrative and student support functions. New Holly Center exists as a condominium arrangement, where the college owns the second floor of the building, and a city branch library is located on the first floor.
