UCR Campus Overview:
Located in Minnesota's third largest city, University Center Rochester
spans undergraduate, graduate and workforce education programs.
UCR serves as a regional hub for educational, cultural and recreational
activities in one of Minnesota's fastest growing cities.
The University Center Rochester campus is home to Rochester Community
and Technical College, and Winona State
University Rochester Center. The two institutions offer more than
135 programs of study, enroll approximately 20,000 students in credit
and noncredit education and is located on a more than 500-acre campus.
Many changes have taken place in nearly a century. In 1915, the
Rochester Junior College was established, representing the oldest community
college in Minnesota. Later, in 1969 the Rochester Area Vocational
and Technical Institute opened. By 1986, Winona
State University-Rochester Center moved to the Rochester Community College
campus and signed a 2+2 agreement with the Community College.
