West Virginia Northern Community College has three locations in Wheeling. The B&O Building, located at 1704 Market Street at the southern end of the business district, originally was the main terminal of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. It contains the administrative offices of the College, counseling and student services, Business Office, Learning Resource Center, classrooms, laboratories, faculty offices, and student and faculty/staff lounges.
The Education Center is a newly renovated building that was formerly a warehouse. This building, located on Chapline Street adjacent to the B&O building, houses the culinary arts facility, all health sciences laboratories, classrooms, faculty offices, the Student Activities office, student and faculty/staff lounges, as well as a 5,000 square foot multi-purpose room.
The Hazel-Atlas Building, at Fifteenth and Jacob streets, was the original location of the College. However, that building was sold and classes normally held there were relocated to a new Wheeling campus building, the Applied Technology Center, for the start of the fall 2013 semester. The ATC is located at the corner of Market and 16th streets across from the B&O Building. The ATC houses the Mechatronics program along with the Petroleum Technology and Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating Technology. Another new Wheeling campus building, housing the Student Union and Barnes and Noble bookstore, opened the summer of 2013 across from the ATC.
