Maps & Directions
The 247-acre Senatobia campus, distinguished by its historic James P. McCormick Administration Building which has been designated a Mississippi landmark, is the hub of the college.
Comprised of 43 buildings including housing facilities for approximately 900 students, the main campus is the site of cultural and extracurricular activities as well as athletic events for students and the community.
DeSoto Center – Southaven
The DeSoto Center campus, financed through the efforts of the taxpayers of DeSoto County, is a 157,925-square-foot structure situated on a beautiful 47-acre site in Southaven, Mississippi. This site, donated by the W.E. Ross family, offers the college opportunities to expand as DeSoto County continues to grow.
The architectural design of the two-and-one-half-story, steel frame facility with a standing seam metal roof is post-modern with early Wrightian influences. Designed to accommodate 1,406 people, the building contains 28 classrooms, four computer labs, two science labs, one practical nursing lab, and 39 offices. The focal point of the DeSoto Center campus is a glass and steel tower that forms the atrium/commons. A closed-circuit TV system provides security for the building as well as the parking area, which has a capacity for approximately 800 cars.
In an effort to meet the training needs of the citizens of DeSoto County and surrounding areas, a career-technical campus was established in the Olive Branch Metro Industrial Park. The campus officially opened in the fall of 1985. DeSoto Center-Olive Branch offers an Aviation Maintenance Technology degree program and a Commercial Truck Driving course.

Lafayette-Yalobusha Technical Center – Oxford Center
Students from all over Mississippi and beyond choose Northwest’s Oxford Center as a great place to get the classes they need to transfer to a four-year college, like neighboring Ole Miss, or get the technical skills they need to compete in today’s highly skilled workforce.
Students can choose from the following academic programs: accountancy, business administration, computer/management information systems, criminal justice, elementary education, general college (core curriculum to transfer to the four-year), liberal arts, recreation and management, education, psychology and social work. The college encourages students to complete their two-year Associate of Arts to ensure all of their academic classes tranfer to the four-year college.
Technical programs leading to an Associate of Applied Science in health-care data technology, microcomputer technology, office systems technology, paralegal technology and surgical technology and Career Certificate programs in cosmetology, health care assistant, practical nursing and office assistant offer students hands-on experience to begin working in their chosen field in as little as nine months.
Located just past Baptist Memorial Hospital at 1310 Belk Drive, Northwest’s Oxford Center is home to just over 1,000 students, so they get the one-on-one attention from faculty they deserve. Students attending the Oxford campus have access to modern classrooms, labs and a learning resources center. Parking is never a problem at this commuter campus—thanks to their newly expanded parking facilities.
The Lafayette-Yalobusha Technical Center at Oxford was opened in the fall of 1983, and an additional 11 acres of land for expansion was purchased in 1999. A 31,000-square-foot expansion was opened in August 2002.
