The University Center Ridge Campus (UCRC) Building is intended to serve as a satellite campus of Lorain County Community College (LCCC) situated in a previously underserved area of Lorain County. Operating as a self-sufficient campus, the building contains faculty and student services offices, 15 classrooms, a health sciences simulation lab, meeting rooms, and a variety of student spaces.
