(Westlake) – Cuyahoga Community College is starting construction of a second building at its Westshore campus in Westlake.
Groundbreaking was held Tuesday for the Westshore Campus Center. The $40 million project helps Tri-C address space shortages at the school’s Corporate College West campus.
The nearly 89,000-square-foot Westshore Campus Center will feature more than 30 classrooms as well as specialized labs dedicated to engineering and information technology. Plans also include areas for tutoring and other student support services.
The project will expand upon learning opportunities available at the site and fulfill the original vision for Westshore Campus, which opened in 2011.
The campus posted record enrollment numbers this academic year, with double-digit percentage increases for both fall and spring semesters. The registration surge pushed the student population at the campus to nearly 2,200.
