Geography and layout

LCC is located in central Lane County between south Eugene and Springfield, just west of I-5. There are 19 buildings located on the main campus. Due to the hilly campus terrain, the fourth floor on the north end of the campus is at an elevation slightly below ground floor on the south end. The "Center" building houses the library, bookstore, cafeteria, and the majority of the English and language classrooms. "Enrollment Services" is the campus student center for enrollment and bookkeeping.

LCC's campus is fully accessible for wheelchairs and the mobility impaired, and has a network of concrete bridges that connect neighboring buildings. Parking surrounds the campus buildings on three sides, while athletic facilities such as the track, soccer field, and baseball field cover the north side of the campus. Entering campus from the West side lot, there is a newly renovated courtyard that used to serve as large concrete fountain, but was recently turned into a flat maze garden speckled with native plants and a small stone fountain in the middle.

Evergreen forest is seen facing west from the campus, and trails are intertwined into the brush, being used for some physical education classes.


Lane Community College owns the license for NPR affiliate KLCC. It broadcasts on a frequency of 89.7 MHz in Eugene and on various other repeater frequencies at other cities in West Central Oregon. The station is noteworthy for its eclectic music blend, both on its weekday program "Fresh Tracks" and on various programs that focus on specific musical genres. Its programming schedule is rounded out with the flagship NPR newsmagazines "Morning Edition", "Weekend Edition", and "All Things Considered", a locally produced newsmagazine called "Northwest Passage", "Car Talk", and public affairs and discussion.
