The FBI Academy is located in Quantico, Virginia. It was first opened for use in 1972[citation needed] on 385 acres (1.6 km²) of woodland,[2] which is not available for public tours. It is a relatively small government academy, housing only three dormitory buildings, along with associative facilities.[2] It holds 250 trainees for ten week courses four times a year.

The academy occupies 547 acres within Marine Corps Base Quantico.[3]

It includes the mock town Hogan's Alley.[4][2]
