Campus Store Relocation

The HCC Campus Store has been temporarily relocated to the Robinwood Center on HCC's campus. The Robinwood Center is the stone building located near the Career Programs Building. Temporary, 30-minute parking for Campus Store use is available in Lot C. The Campus Store will remain in this location until the renovation of the Student Center has been completed.

Roundabout on Robinwood Drive

As part of a road improvement project, the intersection at the front of the HCC campus is being converted into a roundabout. Construction is now occurring on Robinwood Drive between Meritus Medical Center (Medical Campus Road) and HCC. The construction will continue through January 2015.

Tips for HCC students

  •     Plan for delays and allow extra time to get to class
  •     Try to find an alternate route that will avoid the congestion between Meritus Medical Center and HCC
  •     Enter Robinwood Drive from Jefferson Blvd. (Route 64) if possible
