Plymouth Campus

In the fall of 1991, Quincy College founded the Plymouth campus in historic downtown Plymouth to serve the educational needs of Southeastern Massachusetts. In 2007, the campus moved to its current location in Cordage Park, once an old rope-making factory. This historic building space was converted for the campus and provides ample parking at a convenient location directly off of Route 3.

The campus is continuously expanding to meet the needs of the growing student body. Recently added facilities include new offices, bright classrooms, a state of the art science lab, and a brand new nursing lab. The computer center, learning center and career center provide an array of support services such as tutoring and career training to students at no additional cost. You will not find more dedicated, enthusiastic and caring faculty than you will at Quincy College. The campus events such as the monthly Open Mic Nights, and the small class sizes, allow the instructors the ability to work closely with the students and build relationships which cultivate a great learning environment. Through the collective focus of teaching and learning, the faculty and staff strive to make each student’s experience at Quincy College Plymouth an enriching, enjoyable and meaningful learning experience.
