South 27th Street & Q Street Omaha, NE 68107
Nebraska State Legislator Eugene T. Mahoney had an active interest in the revitalization of South Omaha and the creation of jobs and job training in the former packing plant area. He was responsible for passage of legislation funding the College's purchase of land in the earlier developed stockyard area. In 1975, the College purchased the site which is currently the South Omaha Campus. The Mahoney building, named after State Legislator Mahoney, opened in 1978. The College's Industrial Training Center was constructed in 1979 with a federal grant under the Federal Government's Economic Development Act of 1976. Construction on the Connector building began in December 2005 and the building was opened to students in July 2007.
The South Omaha Campus consists of three buildings located on 40 acres in the heart of south Omaha at 27th and Q Street. The Mahoney and Industrial Training Center (ITC) buildings house many credit and specialized programs. The Connector Building, a two level building, houses Student Affairs (registration, financial aid, testing, and career services), Book Store, Writing, Math, and the Academic Resource Centers, Food Court, and Metro bus hub. Joint library venture at South Omaha Campus with the City of Omaha opened in 2008.
Easy access from the interstate and Kennedy Freeway has more students attending this campus than the others.
MCC also offers classes in the South Omaha area at Bellevue East High School and Bellevue West High School.
