Prince George’s Community College continues to build, renovate, and expand its facilities to ensure that they meet the needs of students. These projects support the College’s strategic goals of student success, regional impact, and organizational excellence.

Current and Recent Construction on the Largo Campus

Marlboro Hall

A three-year renovation and expansion project is currently underway at Marlboro Hall. The work began in January 2020 and is scheduled to be completed in 2024.

Marlboro Hall is a three-story facility that was initially built in 1975. Expanding the building from 77,672 to 130,156 square feet provides more space for academic programs and larger classrooms and laboratories. The building connects to Bladen and Lanham Halls.

The renovations will provide high-tech classrooms and more efficient electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and technology systems, along with a new roof. The project will also ensure that the facility is accessible and ADA compliant. 

The Marlboro Hall construction project is expected to create spaces that inspire and cultivate learning. The exterior will be rebranded and enhanced with defined entry points and visual interest that coincide with the academic programs that reside there.

Funding for the $164.4 million project comes primarily from the state of Maryland and Prince George’s County.

Center for Performing Arts

The renovated and expanded Queen Anne Hall opened for classes in August 2019 with its new name, Center for Performing Arts. In September, this new premier performance venue for the region was officially launched with a weekend of performances and events, including the return of the Bluebird Blues Festival. The facility includes state-of-the-art equipment and three theaters, a large dance student, and a recital hall. The facility now houses the College’s music, dance, theater, and communications programs under one roof, along with a radio station, a music and audio production suite, and a broadcast studio.

Lanham Hall

Lanham Hall is the College’s oldest building, and it was renovated and expanded by 19,000 square feet to meet student needs and improve efficiency at the College. The building reopened on June 22, 2018. The facility houses the College’s student support services, Workforce Development and Continuing Education offices, and Maryland’s first middle college, the Academy of Health Sciences. The project was funded by the state of Maryland and Prince George’s County.

Culinary Arts Center

The College’s Culinary Arts Center opened in Largo on April 19, 2018, providing a place to train students interested in careers in the growing hospitality industry. The Center offers three specialized kitchens and a large community kitchen where students learn to cook and serve what they make. Academic, certificate, and licensing programs are housed in the Culinary Arts Center, along with courses for home cooks and summer youth programs.

Facilities Master Plan

Prince George’s Community College construction projects are guided by the College’s Facilities Master Plan, which creates the vision and framework for all future development of facilities within the next decade. The master plan explores the ramifications of enrollment growth at all of the College’s locations. It is also used by both the Maryland Department of Budget and Management (DBM) and the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) as part of the review process for all capital project funding requests from the College.
