Since 1945, Manchester Community College has been the choice for thousands of students seeking a better life for themselves and their families. Originally named the State Trade School at Manchester, the school was founded to provide technical career training to returning World War II soldiers, sailors and airmen. Now, after several names and in its third location, it has evolved to Manchester Community College, the second largest of the seven colleges in the Community College System of New Hampshire.

Located on 57 acres near the banks of the Merrimack River, north of the city center, MCC offers classes and programs in three major connected buildings and a separate Automotive Training Center, and has ample room for future growth while retaining more than adequate green space and parking. As part of New Hampshire’s largest city, MCC is actively engaged in community outreach, and plays an integral role in the increasing ethnic and cultural diversity of the area.

MCC enrolls about 3,500 students per semester from more than 50 countries, preparing them to transfer to four-year colleges to complete their bachelor degrees, or to go directly into the workforce with the skills they need to be successful in their chosen careers. Students choose from more than 50 degree and certificate programs as well as workshops and professional development programs on the campus; dozens of courses are also offered online.
