New Facilities at CFCC

Union Station is a a 250,000-square-foot academic and administrative building on the northern side of CFCC’s Wilmington campus.
The five-story, $54.5 million building provides additional space, 36 total classrooms, and labs–for CFCC’s health sciences programs. The Health science labs include state-of-the-art simulated operating and emergency rooms–complete with computerized interactive dummies as “patients”–and control rooms where instructors can observe students while they practice procedures. Union Station also includes computer labs and labs for biology, chemistry and anatomy.
Union Station also consolidates student services in a centralized location and will provides space for financial aid, veteran affairs, career and testing offices, student activities and counseling to operate under one roof.
In addition to administrative offices, the top floor features a conference suite with an open-air terrace that overlooks the Cape Fear River and downtown Wilmington. Businesses and community organizations can rent these facilities.

The Advanced and Emerging Technologies Center (AETC) will be used to expand current job training programs that are in high demand and provide additional space for new job training programs. The project will also provide space for customized industry training to help businesses become more efficient and competitive.
