Oxnard College is a public community college in Oxnard, California. It has been a part of the Ventura County Community College District since 1975. It serves the Oxnard Plain cities of Oxnard, Camarillo, and Port Hueneme. The college offers two-year degrees, including the California transfer curriculum, as well as career and technical education programs to the local community.
The first two permanent buildings were occupied in the fall of 1979. In 2002, due to the passage of the Measure S bond, Oxnard College received $129 million that would be allocated towards new buildings and renovations. These newly acquired funds led to the creation of new building on campus such as Condor Cafe in 2009. The campus also held dedication ceremonies for the new buildings, including a new Student Services building in 2009, a new Performing Arts building in Spring 2011, a new Library Learning Resource Center (LLRC) in June 2012, and a new Dental Hygiene building in 2016. Some renovations that were also made to existing buildings were an expansion of classrooms in the Child Development Center. This also included the renovation and expansion of athletic facilities which included a new track/soccer stadium, a new softball field, and upgraded baseball facilities. In 2014, renovation and seismic retrofitting began on the old Learning Resource Center (LRC) building; the work was completed in 2017 and the building is now known as Condor Hall. Oxnard College continues to be committed to developing a comprehensive educational program as well as a comprehensive campus environment for the students of its service area.
