On a 186-acre site in Blue Bell, the Central Campus was developed in 1972 on Gwynllan Farm, a former dairy farm. It is located half way between Norristown and Lansdale on Route 202, about 25 miles northwest of Center City Philadelphia. Many of the County's 62 boroughs and municipalities are located within a 10-mile radius of the Central Campus.
To meet the need for accessible higher education within the County, the College has expanded its reach over the years to multiple campuses.
Parkhouse Hall is the principal classroom building. It also contains the Division of Workforce Development and Continuing Education. College Hall serves the hub of student services and includes the Brendlinger Library, one stop registration services, the cafeteria, and the Student Success Center. The Science Center houses the health science programs, classrooms, state-of-the-art learning laboratories, and Dental Hygiene Clinic as well as the Cultural Affairs Office and the Theater and the Black Box Theater and Music classrooms.
The Physical Education Center houses two gymnasiums, a dance studio, a racquetball court, a Wellness Center, a Fitness Assessment Laboratory, classrooms, and faculty offices. The Fine Arts Center provides fine art studios and computer lab space for Digital Art programs. The 2008 renovation and expansion of the building, formerly known as the Art Barn, increased the facility to 26,000 square feet with specialized studios, a grand lobby, art gallery, and sculpture garden.
The Advanced Technology Center opened in 2007 and houses state-of-the-art digital communications studios, television and radio station, observatory, biotechnology laboratories, and conference rooms.

E-Learning is defined as learning that takes place when instructors and learners are separated by time or space. E-Learning has become increasingly popular in higher education over the last several years because it offers several benefits, including access to education for people removed from a college campus (by distance or health condition) or who are unable to keep a regular schedule because of work or family responsibilities. It provides students the chance to pursue a degree that might otherwise not be attainable. Students can currently complete Associate’s Degrees entirely online. These include Accounting, Business Administration, Computer Science, Liberal Studies, Management Information Systems, Office Administration and Secondary Education. The College also offers an online Certificate in Business Management, as well as hundreds of online courses in other degree and certificate programs.
