Classrooms are dedicated to behavioral sciences, English and English as a second language, foreign languages, humanities, reading, and social sciences.

DLR Group Designs New Instructional Building at Compton College
(COMPTON, Calif., April 17, 2019) – Construction is officially underway at the new instructional building at Compton College in Compton, California. DLR Group designers celebrated alongside students, faculty, staff, and community members at a groundbreaking ceremony on April 16.
DLR Group’s design replaces outdated academic and modular buildings with a modern and technology-rich environment to enhance the educational experience for all students. To create an intuitive wayfinding for users and visitors, the design locates academic spaces on the east side and faculty offices on the west side. A main lobby connects the two sections and includes a grand staircase with areas where students can lounge and socialize in between classes. Corridors throughout the building are designed with multiple seating configurations that activate the spaces and encourage students to spend more time on campus. Warm wood tones create a welcoming environment while accents of red integrate the school’s branding into the design.
The new facility is adjacent to the Allied Health Building, which was also designed by DLR Group. Together, these two buildings form a gateway to the north end of the campus. Our use of complementary colors and materials, such as brick, glass, and metal panels, create a cohesive campus aesthetic.”
