Looking Ahead at Newtown
BCTC's Newtown Campus opened for classes starting with the Fall 2013 semester.
It is currently home to the following programs: Film Studies: Script to Screen, Information Management and Design, Medical Information Technology, Office Systems Technology, Health Information Technology, and Real Estate. More programs will be added for the spring semester.
Some unique features of the four-story building include:
- rooftop garden
- film production studio and editing lab (Film Studies program)
- mock server room (Computer Information Technology program)
- student lounge/atrium overlooking the lobby
- state-of-the-art science laboratory with prep area for instructors
The Classroom Building is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified, meaning it is energy efficient and environmentally friendly.
Work will be progressing on the former Eastern State Hospital site, including the renovation of the Administration Building, laundry building, and Magowen Building.
