Gateway Community College serves residents and businesses in the Greater New Haven area with innovative educational programs as well as social and cultural opportunities. In 2010, Gateway became the largest of Connecticut's 12 community colleges. Each year almost 12,000 individuals choose from the more than 100 accredited degree and certificate programs which they take for college credit, professional development and personal enrichment. Gateway offers associate degrees and certificate programs as well as continuing education and early college/high school partnership programs.
The thriving downtown campus is located one block from the New Haven Green and Yale University. The college was founded in 1992 with the merger of South Central Community College in New Haven and the Greater New Haven State Technical College in North Haven.
In 2014, Gateway Community College became the first college in Connecticut to receive official recognition as a “Smoke-Free” campus by the State Department of Public Health and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Gateway's four-story, 358,000-square-foot campus features 90 general purpose classrooms, 22 computer labs, 10 meeting spaces, a two-story Library & Learning Commons, a cafeteria, a bookstore, a small business center, a culinary arts center, a health center, an early learning center, administrative offices and a variety of other features. The campus, which was designed by Perkins+Will, is the largest public project in Connecticut — and the largest project on any college campus in the state.
In addition to our state-of-the-art amenities, the campus upholds a strong commitment to the environmental health of the faculty, staff and students, the community and the city of New Haven. In June 2013, Gateway was presented with an Award of Merit from the Connecticut Green Building Council and in February 2013, Gateway achieved official Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED is an internationally recognized third-party verification that a building was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance in energy savings, water efficiency, carbon dioxide emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. It has more than 50 LEED features.

Gateway Community College was formed on July 1, 1992 from the consolidation of two other secondary institutions. The former South Central Community College (at Long Wharf) combined resources with the former Greater New Haven State Technical College in North Haven.
Gateway Community College is located in their new state-of-the-art campus near downtown New Haven. Gateway students have the additional benefits and convenience of being centrally located in a thriving city, with academic, cultural, and retail opportunities within blocks of the campus. The campus was opened for the Fall 2012 semester.
