  Piedmont Community College has announced new campus hours for both its Person County Campus and its Caswell County Campus. The changes are a part of the College’s commitment to campus safety for all campus users.

The Person County Campus hours are: Monday-Friday, 6:30 a.m.-10:15 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m.-8 p.m.

The Caswell County Campus hours are: Monday-Thursday, 7 a.m.-10 p.m., Friday, 7 a.m.-4 p.m.; Saturday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. (for class only, Building P); and Sunday, campus closed.

These hours will be subject to change to accommodate class schedules outside the College’s normal operating hours.

 “As part of our emphasis on college safety, we find it necessary to establish hours of operation,” said Dr. Walter Bartlett, PCC President. “We are the community’s college, and we want the public to take advantage of all that the College offers them in terms of learning, cultural, and recreational opportunities. We also do not intend to block access to our meeting facilities, the PCC Nature Trail or our new Rockness Monster disc golf course. What we do want to do is make sure that our campuses are safe places for all students, staff and visitors who use our facilities.”

The College is in the process of installing a gate at the College Drive entrance to the Person County Campus; that gate will be locked when the College is closed. The College also is making other changes to enhance campus safety. Exterior lights have been upgraded to save energy and provide additional lighting in parking lots and exterior corridors. PCC students now receive photo identification cards and are required to display them while on campus. PCC faculty and staff also will have photo ID cards.  

“We appreciate the cooperation of the public in helping us make PCC a safe and inviting place for everyone,” said Dr. Bartlett.
