Atterbury Job Corps Center is located on 250 acres in Edinburgh, Indiana, just a short drive from downtown Indianapolis. All students live on campus. Camp Atterbury military base is across the road, and the Johnson County Park and Atterbury Fish and Wildlife Area are also nearby.
Atterbury is one of the nation’s original Job Corps Centers. The site is leased from Camp Atterbury, which was established in 1941 as a site for preparing American military personnel and civilians for service. During WWII, it was also used as a hospital and as an internment compound for POWs. In 1965, 200 acres of the Camp was set aside and became the Atterbury Job Corps Center. The camp is named in memory of William Wallace Atterbury, a New Albany, Indiana native who received a Distinguished Service Medal for his contributions during World War I.
Our campus' residential living facilities can house 350 male students in four dorms and 200 female students in two dorms. The male dorms have communal restrooms on each wing, and the female dorms have individual restrooms. Residential students live with up to three roommates and enjoy the following amenities:
- laundry facilities
- TV lounges
- vending machines
- computer labs
There is also an on-site independent living adviser to help make dorm life safe, clean, and productive for the students.
Students stay in separate male and female dormitories. There are up to four students to each dorm room. Your room will be assigned to you upon arrival at the center.
Job Corps values diversity and will provide you with opportunities to live and interact with people of many different backgrounds.
