Willow Creek Campus

Welcome to Willow Creek

PCC’s three-story, mixed-use development at Willow Creek was completed in 2010. A number of sustainability features, including solar panels and the use of water-efficient fixtures and landscaping, earned the center a LEED Platinum rating.

The 100,000 square-foot building, located at TriMet's Willow Creek Transit Center, houses the Washington County Workforce Training Center, seven computer classrooms, 17 general purpose classrooms, a GED testing center, four labs, a wellness room, and a large multipurpose room for special events. The center is also home to PCC’s Computer Education and Community Education departments, as well as many other college programs such as  GED classes, certified nursing assistant training, medical assisting and emergency medical services.

During bond construction on the nearby Rock Creek Campus, the Willow Creek Center will provide vital swing space. Classes in math, writing, general education, health and business are scheduled at different days and times to make availability convenient for both PCC students and faculty.
