Santa Rosa Junior College has been offering courses in the Petaluma area for over 50 years. The Petaluma Center operated primarily as an evening program until the completion in 1995 of permanent facilities on its current site. The Petaluma Center was granted Campus status by the SRJC Board of Trustees and the California Community College Chancellor’s Office in the spring of 1999.
SRJC Petaluma currently enrolls nearly 4,500 students in credit and non-credit courses both day and evening classes. Each semester students enroll in approximately 350 course sections in nearly 60 disciplines, including 30 majors and certificates as well as all of the courses necessary for transfer to UC, CSU, or to complete SRJC’s general education requirements.
A second phase of new construction for the Petaluma Campus was completed in 2008, and a third phase of construction completed in 2009 renovated the original campus. This project, the largest of its kind in SRJC’s history, tripled the square footage of the campus, added seven new buildings, renovated another three, and expanded outdoor space and parking lots. Among the new facilities are life sciences labs, a second art studio, physical science labs, a 35,000 square foot library, a physical fitness center, a bookstore, student services and support areas (including student health services, student life and leadership, admissions and records, counseling, disabled student services, tutorial center, and career/transfer center), expanded dining space, classrooms/technology labs, faculty/administrative offices, digital media lab, and a 256-seat auditorium with some of the best media technology in the District. The campus offers state-of-the-art technology throughout, including a wireless network, fully mediated instructional facilities, and video-conferencing capabilities. Other unique features of the Petaluma Campus include the Capri Creek restoration project, community and permaculture gardens, sustainable design, and an accessible pedestrian and bike trail system with a route that extends around the perimeter of the campus and continues throughout the city of Petaluma.
Instructional offerings include a full complement of General Education courses and 20+ transfer majors, a state of the art Film Studies program that includes a Cinema Series and Digital Film Production classes, Fitness Nutrition and Health certificate, Veterinary Technology, Digital Media Audio, CISCO certification in CCNA, IT Support, Yoga Teacher Training certificate, and Water and Wastewater Utility Operations certificates. The campus is also home to SRJC’s Gateway to College Academy, a middle college program for students earning college credits while working towards a high school diploma. Our House Intercultural Center hosts cultural and educational events that engage the community year-round, including the annual We the Future Social Justice Conference. Petaluma Campus opens its doors to the community every October for LumaFest, the annual education fair and open house. This beautiful campus is located only 35 miles north of San Francisco.
