Students having any questions about college or the Wheeling Campus are encouraged to stop by anytime during normal business hours.
The Education Center is located on Chapline Street adjacent to the B&O Building and houses the culinary arts facility, all health sciences laboratories, classrooms, faculty offices, student and faculty/staff lounges, as well as a 5,000-square foot multi-purpose room. It also includes a gym, which is available to WVNCC students for free.
The Applied Technology Center is located at the corner of Market and 16th Streets across from the B&O Building and adjacent to the Student Union. The ATC houses the Advanced Manufacturing Program and the HVAC Program. This building includes state-of-the-art equipment to give students a hands-on experience in these fields.
