Our Campus

When KCC first purchased the land for its current campus in 1941, the area was part of the rural landscape along Highway 69. Decades later, the college’s home at 74th St. and Metcalf Ave. in Overland Park, Kan., is now part of a thriving Kansas City suburb filled with businesses and charming residential communities. The once country highway has become a major thoroughfare over the years, leaving KCC in a prime, convenient location.

The KCC campus is made up of seven primary buildings. Cowen Memorial Auditorium (7020 W. 74th Street) houses the Athletic offices as well as an auditorium/gymnasium. The 20,000-square-foot Palmer Education Center holds classrooms, additional offices, and the library. Just across 74th St. sits Shaver Hall, which includes student dorm rooms the cafeteria, apartments, student lounges, and laundry facilities. The Student Services Building provides administrative and online as well as financial aid and recruiting offices.  The College building includes college classrooms faculty offices and a student center.  A limited number of on-campus faculty and staff residences are also located on the property.

In addition to our buildings, KCC owns a large green space that is used for a variety of sporting activities including soccer, softball, track, and more.

(For information about renting our facilities or green space, contact our business office at 913-722-0272.)
