Gainesville Job Corps Center is located on 47 acres in northeast Gainesville, Florida, just a short drive from the University of Florida.
From about 1955 to 1978, the Sperry Rand Corp. operated an electronic tube factory on the 47 acres that were destined to become the Gainesville Job Corps Center. In 1979, the land was purchased by the Department of Labor and the GJCC opened soon after.
Our campus' residential living facilities can house 195 male students in four dorms and 120 female students in four dorms. Students living in the male dorms have one to five roommates and communal bathrooms, and students living in the female dorms have one to three roommates and private bathrooms. Each dormitory has an honor dorm room for students who qualify. All residential students enjoy the following amenities:
- laundry facilities
- TV lounges
- computer labs
- vending machines
We also serve nonresidential students.
Students stay in separate male and female dormitories. There are up to six 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.
