The main campus is at 742 Upper Maple Street in Danielson. In 1986, the Willimantic Center opened to offer residents in the southwestern corner of QVCC's service region access to the educational offerings of QVCC. The Willimantic Center was expanded and moved to its current location at 729 Main Street, Willimantic, CT in 2005. An 30,000-square-foot (2,800 m2) addition to the main campus was completed in the fall of 2006.
