Palm Beach State’s long anticipated fifth campus officially opened on Feb. 27, 2017. Nestled on a beautiful 75-acre site with preserved wetlands, virgin woodlands and cypress trees, the Loxahatchee Groves campus represents a pivotal moment in the College’s history. It is PBSC’s first campus constructed in more than 30 years, and it brings the College’s high-quality, affordable education to the west-central areas of the county.
Named after PBSC’s retired fourth president, Dr. Dennis P. Gallon, the campus opens with the capacity to serve about 2,000 students. The first building is a three-story, 50,000-square-foot multipurpose facility with classrooms, computer labs and a 250-seat lecture hall. In keeping with the College’s commitment to sustainable construction, the Loxahatchee Groves campus adheres to the International Green Construction Code, developed to make buildings more efficient, reduce waste, and have a positive impact on health, safety and community welfare.
