The college is located along U.S. Route 14, on the northwest side of Crystal Lake, Illinois.[3] There are also secondary facilities in Woodstock and McHenry.[3] Some classes are also taught at area high schools, public libraries, local businesses, and other off-campus locations.

The college was established on April 1, 1967 as part of the Illinois community college system.[1] In September 1968 classes were held for the first time for 312 full-time and 1045 part-time students at a rented oil company in Crystal Lake.[1] In 1974 construction began on new facilities at its present 68 acre site, known at the time as Weber Farm.[1] The school began some classes at the new facility in September 1975, and the move was complete by May 1976.[1] MCC continued to grow, both in land area and student population.[1]
