Facts & Visitor Information

Umpqua Community College was established by a vote of greater Douglas County residents in 1964 and, for the first few years, conducted classes in various rented facilities in Roseburg. Since its founding as a post-secondary education facility, UCC has grown and changed to meet the diverse needs of the community. More than 15,000 students take one or more classes each year, for a full-time equivalent (FTE) of about 3,000 full-time students.

Campus and Surroundings

UCC Campus VideoUCC is one of the most picturesque colleges in the country, nestled between beautiful tree-studded hills and overlooking a large bend in the North Umpqua River. Natural volcanic rock and rustic, cedar shake architecture grace the 17 campus buildings located on a 100-acre plot of land six miles north of Roseburg. Easy access to Interstate 5 and mild year-around temperatures complement the scenic beauty of the campus.
