- Founded in 1966 as a branch campus of Manchester Community College, Middlesex Community College became an independent member of the Community College System in 1968. In 1973, the college moved to its present 38-acre campus, which overlooks the scenic Connecticut River and the City of Middletown. Middlesex Community College is conveniently located in Central Connecticut and is easily accessible via major interstates. An open admissions college, Middlesex awards associate degrees in more than 20 major areas and certificates in a variety of programs which lead to further study, employment and active citizenship. The educational goal of the college is to promote understanding, learning, ethics, and self-discipline by encouraging critical thinking. Enrollment at Middlesex has grown from an original class of 320 to more than 2200 full and part-time students. The college also serves the diverse educational needs of more than 1700 continuing education students through its Credit-Free Division. The college's four main air-conditioned and handicapped accessible buildings-Snow, Wheaton, Founders and Chapman Halls-are located on a scenic campus approximately a mile and a half from the center of Middletown. Within this complex are general purpose classrooms, a computer center and computer classrooms, art studios, a state-of-the-art broadcast communications center, special purpose chemistry and biology laboratories, a learning laboratory for reading and writing, an ophthalmic design and dispensing laboratory, faculty and administrative offices, cafeteria, bookstore, multi-purpose rooms, and a library.
