Collin College Technical Campus


Collin College Technical Campus

Collin County’s central hub for technical education

With Collin County expected to add over 780,000 residents and 300,000 jobs by 2040, Collin College has recognized the need to begin planning and building capacity to serve the county’s growing higher education needs.

In 2017, Collin College presented voters with a new master plan that called for a new vision and facilities across the county. Voters approved the College’s $600 million bond package in May 2017, which included the Collin College Technical Campus in Allen that will open in Fall 2020 and eventually serve over 7,000 students.

About the Technical Campus

The Collin College Technical Campus will serve over 7,000 students in a four-building campus with:

  • nearly 340,000 SF of state-of-the-art instructional, vocational, technology training, and office space
  • partnered with Allen ISD to provide expansive dual credit education space at the Technical Campus. Students interested in technical educations and trades will be able to study alongside Collin College students while still in high school.
  • a true campus environment—unique among local community colleges—that features an underground parking garage and sidewalk connections so students can walk and bike to nearby amenities in mixed-use developments along the 121 Corridor
