Campuses

GO FAR. CLOSE TO HOME.
Northwest has three campus locations within the 11-county district it serves, as well as four off-campus sites which provide Career-Technical educational opportunities for area residents.  Our eLearning campus provides online learning through the Mississippi Virtual Community College System.

Senatobia Campus
The Senatobia campus serves as Northwest’s main campus and is the hub of administrative, athletic and performance activities at the college.  The campus features nine residence halls, a Student Union, Fine Arts Auditorium and conference center/cafeteria as well as numerous educational and administrative facilities.

DeSoto Center
Located in one of the state’s fastest-growing counties, DeSoto Center encompasses a full-service center location in Southaven as well as an off-campus site in Olive Branch.  The Southaven location offers both academic pathways and Career-Technical programs, as well as student life opportunities, a variety of student services, and a partnership with the University of Mississippi. The Olive Branch site, located near the Olive Branch Airport, offers Career-Technical training in Aviation Maintenance Technology, Commercial Truck Driving, and Utility Line Worker.

Lafayette-Yalobusha Technical Center 
LYTC is located in Oxford’s medical district near the former Baptist Hospital.  The commuter campus offers students both academic pathways and Career-Technical programs, student services and support, and provides fun activities as well as clubs and organizations.  A recent campus beautification project has given the center a fresh look with outdoor improvements as well as upgraded interior spaces for students to study, socialize or just relax.

Benton County Career-Technical Center 
Northwest offers residents in the Benton County area educational opportunities at the Benton County Career-Technical Center in Ashland through a partnership with Benton County Schools. Two Career-Technical programs, cosmetology and practical nursing, provide training beginning in the fall semester and continuing year-round.

Everest
Northwest offers residents in the Yalobusha County area educational opportunities in Water Valley at Everest.  Everest is an incubator for technology skills training, bringing business and education together under one roof . The College utilizes 15,000 square feet of space at this off-campus instructional site developed through the expansion of a relationship with Base Camp Coding Academy. Programs offered at this facility include Coding Technology and Health Care Assistant with phlebotomy certification, as well as Adult Education classes, a proctored testing center and various Workforce training offerings.

The Concourse
Panola County collaborated with the City of Batesville, the Panola Partnership, local industry, and Northwest to convert a 138,000-square-foot factory outlet mall into a workforce training and off-campus college credit instructional site to serve the North Mississippi region, called The Concourse. Currently the college utilizes 59,730 square foot of renovated space providing administrative space, common spaces for students including the Ranger Café, WIN Job Center, adult education classrooms, proctored HSE testing center, instructional classrooms, technical lab spaces, and a ten-bay shop for the Diesel Technology program. Programs at the site will be expanded as construction progresses.
