Locations & Maps

EMCC Main Campus – Avondale

Estrella Mountain Community College, located at 3000 N. Dysart Road, Avondale, AZ 85392 was established in 1992 and is the newest of the 10 Maricopa Community Colleges. With community input and a dedication to sustainability, the campus was created to be a proud exhibit of contemporary architecture among a responsibly planned desert landscape that enhances the learning experience.

Occupying 135 acres in the southwest Valley of Phoenix, the campus is conveniently accessible off of Interstate 10 (west of Phoenix and Loop 101), 15 minutes west of downtown Phoenix, at the intersection of Dysart and Thomas roads. EMCC’s service areas are identified as Avondale, Buckeye, El Mirage, Gila Bend, Goodyear, Luke A.F.B., Litchfield Park, Surprise, Tolleson, and West Phoenix (west of 67th Avenue and south of Camelback), but draws students and visitors from across the Valley.

EMCC Buckeye Educational Center

The Estrella Mountain Community College Buckeye Educational Center opened in the fall of 2011 to provide convenient access to college education and workforce development classes for the residents of the city of Buckeye and its surrounding communities including Tonopah, Gila Bend, Harquahala Valley, Palo Verde, and Rainbow Valley.  The center is located at 902 E. Eason Ave., Buckeye, AZ 85326, in the nationally registered historic and renovated original Buckeye Union High School building.

The center consists of six state-of-the-art computer classrooms, administrative space for faculty and staff, and student service areas for advisement, enrollment, financial aid, counseling and tutoring. Artistic courtyards provide small, intimate settings for studying and socializing.

EMCC @ West-MEC Southwest Campus

Estrella Mountain Community College is one component of a first-of-its-kind partnership between a public utility, a community college and a joint technical high school district. Located at 500 N. Verrado Way, Buckeye, AZ 85326, the EMCC location at the West-MEC Southwest Campus offers student services such as advisement, admissions and registration and placement testing to both high school students and the local community.

Through this partnership, EMCC will offer courses that can be applied toward Manufacturing, Distribution, Energy and IT Security programs* for current college students and dual enrollment opportunities for West-MEC high school students. (*Coursework can be applied toward numerous degrees and certificates, but current offerings at the site include less than 50 percent of program requirements until further notice.)
