Campuses[edit]

Spring Creek Campus

The Central Park Campus in McKinney opened in 1985 with comprehensive renovations completed in the fall of 2009.[2] New features include a multi-story parking garage, library, classrooms, offices, student development center and clock tower. The new library building totals 73,500 square feet (6,830 m2). In January 2016, Collin College added a 125,000-square-foot state of the art Health Sciences Center.[3] The Spring Creek campus in Plano opened in fall of 1988.[4] By number of students, this campus is the largest, providing general classes and housing the college system's honors,[5] fine arts, and athletics[6] programs.

Collin College's business and high-tech programs are centered at Preston Ridge, and the culinary arts program moved there in 2009.[13] Collin College
