CLC Projects

MiraCosta’s Community Learning Center (CLC) is located in downtown Oceanside. This 7.6-acre urban facility is home to the college’s noncredit courses. The CLC is located just east of Interstate 5 at the Mission Avenue exit, and is easily accessed by NCTD buses.

The Facilities Master Plan for the CLC looks to create a cohesive campus environment that feels like a MiraCosta campus.  This is accomplished through the creation of a centralized campus quad that provides the physical elements that comprise a college campus.  Active outdoor areas will knit together the instructional spaces with the new student-centered building.  The quad will allow students to stay on campus for longer periods of time by providing much needed study and socialization spaces and improving the campus aesthetics.  All these elements work together to increase the student experience on campus, thus increasing the overall student success at the CLC

The new Student Resources Building will provide an anchor for the new campus quad that will encourage students to interact with the outdoor environments.  It will provide the space to correct the space deficiencies in office, library, and instructional media spaces.

The projects are tentatively slated to be completed in two phases.  Phase One projects for the CLC include:

Information about Phase Two will be included here once finalized. Information about project budgets will also be included once finalized.

Demolition and Site Projects

The demolition projects at the CLC look to remove the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) due to its critically poor condition and state of vacancy.  Following the demolition of the outdated SBDC, the project will include the construction of new monument signage for the campus.

Anticipated Project Timeframe:

Student Resources Building

The new Student Resources Building provides the flexibility to become a student-friendly space that consolidates the study and social spaces into a Student Services Center, a single, dynamic environment provides the staff spaces required to properly serve the needs of the CLC.

The project will include an events terrace, a park and native garden, and a series of bioswales.

The preliminary programming and space planning for the building includes:
Preliminary Building Area - 5,550 Assignable Square Feet (ASF)
Total ASF – 5,550 ASF
Total Gross Square Feet (GSF) - 9,270 GSF (assumes 60% efficiency)

Anticipated Project Timeframe:
