About the Woodbridge Campus

In 1965, Northern Virginia Technical College opened for classes with 761 students in the Carlyn Springs Road warehouse, located in Bailey's Crossroads. To accommodate an ever-growing student body, the college purchased 109 acres in Woodbridge, Prince William County, in 1967 to build one of six permanent campus sites.

Originally known as the Southern Campus, Woodbridge first offered classes in the fall of 1972. Today, the Woodbridge Campus offers four classroom buildings, sports fields and courts, a gorgeous on-campus lake and the Woodbridge Campus Theater.

Woodbridge is devoted to education. This commitment is evident in the variety of existing certificates and degrees, the NOVA Gold and other first-student programs, and the courses offered to local and regional businesses and employees. Among the more distinctive of these programs are the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration program through the Natural Science and Mathematics Division, the Web Development courses via the office of Continuing Education and Workforce Development and the English as a Second Language program through the Communication and Humanities Division.
