About Loudoun

The Loudoun Campus provides a variety of academic programs, workforce development classes, student activities, events and campus facilities to more than 11,000 students each year.

Originally known as the Northern Campus, the Loudoun Campus sits on a 93-acre site along SR 7 in Sterling that once was the Ankers family farm and blacksmith shop. Construction of the first campus buildings began in 1972. The campus opened in 1974 with a Main Building, a small Science Facility, a greenhouse, and specialized facilities for Animal Science and Interior Design. Many Loudoun County residents remember taking classes during the early years when the Main Building housed most of the campus classrooms.

The Loudoun Campus grew along with Loudoun County, opening the iconic Waddell Building with its three peaks in 2002, the Learning Commons Building in 2022, and the Higher Education Center in 2015. The campus offers a unique blend of programs for a wide range of student interests. The Reston Technology Center is an extension of the campus in walking distance from the Wiehle Avenue Metro Station on the Silver Line. Among campus amenities are a theater, an art gallery space, an event space, a fitness center, a greenhouse, and a Horticulture Garden.
