In 1965, Northern Virginia Technical College opened for classes with 761 students in the Carlyn Springs Road warehouse, located in Bailey's Crossroads. The College purchased 109 acres in Woodbridge to accommodate an ever-growing student body in 1967 to build one of six permanent campus sites.
Woodbridge first offered classes in the Fall of 1972 and was originally known as the Southern Campus. Today, the Woodbridge Campus has four academic buildings, sports fields, courts and the Regional Center for Workforce Education and Training. NOVA’s Woodbridge Campus is dedicated to the success of a diverse student population, empowering its faculty and staff, and improving the quality of life in the region it supports.
The Woodbridge Campus offers distinctive programs including Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, Massage Therapy, Film & Photography, Web Development and English as a Second Language (ESL) in addition to many other degree and certificate programs.

The purpose of the Forum Council is to serve as an instrument for the formulation and expression of faculty, student and staff points of view on each campus. The Council usually considers questions relevant to its respective campus and its constituencies. It advises and seeks advice from the Provost of the campus and, through the Provost, to the President of the College. It also communicates with and makes recommendations to campus committees, college committees and/or the College Senate.
