What is the College Instruction Center?

The College Instruction Center (CIC) is a multipurpose facility that will benefit students, faculty, staff and our community for decades to come. This 70,000-square-foot building includes space for Health Occupations programs like Nursing and Physical Therapist Assistant. It provides new locations for Art, Music and Theater programs. A 276-seat venue/classroom will attract the community to our campus for events like the Olympic Jazz Classic, Bremerton Symphony and youth orchestra performances. Site work included in the project improves traffic in the busy Warren Avenue corridor, and provides enhanced transit access via an on-campus bus turnaround.

Construction will result in the loss of 244 spaces initially in the student lot G-4 where the CIC is being built. OC is converting several pieces of property it owns into general parking and leasing space to offset lost parking until a new parking lot is completed in 2017. To learn more, visit the CIC parking webpage and fact sheet.
