Loudoun Campus History

The Loudoun Campus is located in Sterling and primarily serves the residents of northern Fairfax County and Loudoun County. Construction began on a 91.4 acre site in 1972 and was completed in 1974 with four permanent buildings, the temporary Interior Design Building, and commercial grade greenhouse/laboratories. In Fall 2012, the Learning Commons building opened at the Loudoun Campus which boasts an impressive new library, improved food services and a variety of meeting space and recreation rooms. In Fall 2015, the the Robert G. Templin, Jr. Higher Education Center (HEC) opened. The 41,000 square foot facility is LEED Certified Silver and contains energy saving features such as directional outdoor lightning, occupancy sensors for lighting control, LED lights and a geothermal system to provide heating and cooling. It also has a green roof and rain gardens to reduce rain run-off and a white roof to reflect heat.

Among the more distinctive programs offered at Loudoun are Veterinary Technology, Horticulture and Biotechnology programs through the Mathematics, Sciences, Technologies, and Business Division. In addition, they offer Geographic Information Systems, Music Recording Technology and Communication Design programs through the Languages, Arts, and Social Sciences Division.
