The District acquired the 10-acre site which is located northeast of Vallejo off Columbus Parkway.
Solano Community College Vacaville Center Project, Currently in Construction
The committee has completed Master Planning for this center. The cost estimates were based on the proposed programs and space requirements agreed upon at the time of the development of the District’s Facility Master Plan. The Site consists of 60 acres. While proposed budgets have been developed, priorities at the District level are changing and the planning will need to take these changes into account. The project estimates also include the cost of Group II equipment for the space allocation defined in the project.
Student Services Center Project
This is a new two-story building that was constructed on our Fairfield Campus to consolidate and improve student access to Student Services Programs. This building also has classrooms to expand and enhance student learning. At this location, the building establishes a new central entry plaza and provides a “one-stop” service location for all students.
