Campuses[edit]

Reynolds has three campuses: Downtown, Parham Road, and Goochland.

Downtown campus[edit]

The Downtown Campus is housed in a modern, high-rise structure at Seventh and Jackson Streets, having moved in the fall of 1981 from leased facilities in the 100 block of East Grace Street. In the fall of 1995 a major addition to this facility was completed, adding 84,000 square feet (7,800 m2) to the existing structure. A six-story parking deck is adjacent to the DTC. This campus is located on or near (1-3 blocks) many city (GRTC) buses.

Parham Road campus[edit]

In September 1974, the Parham Road Campus opened in a newly constructed, contemporary building located on a 105-acre (0.42 km2) site in northern Henrico County. A second instructional building was completed on this suburban campus in time for the opening of classes in the fall of 1980. A three-story structure adjacent to the Parham Road Campus houses executive and central administrative offices. In the fall of 2008, the Parham campus opened the Massey Library Technology Center, named for Ivor & Maureen Massey.

Goochland campus[edit]

An instructional facility at the Goochland Campus was completed in the fall of 1981. A major addition to the Goochland Campus opened in Spring 2001, making this the college's third comprehensive campus. The Goochland Campus offers programs in horticulture, automotive and diesel mechanics, welding and equine management.[2]

Programs[edit]

The college offers 25 two-year occupational/technical programs, 9 certificate programs and 41 career studies certificate programs requiring less than one year of full-time study. Having enrolled more than 308,000 persons in credit courses since its opening, J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College continues to strive to meet the aspirations of its namesake to provide "a practical and economic answer to the future educational needs of thousands of ...Virginians."
