Lone Star College - North Harris College

North Harris College is the original college campus in NHMCCD and is the largest campus. The College will celebrate its silver anniversary this year. With more than 60 programs of study, NHC focuses on leading-edge technology in the emerging technical job fields. Two neighborhood centers-Parkway Center and Carver Center-provide resident's neighborhood access to educational opportunities.

Lone Star College - Cy-Fair College

The land purchase was finalized in early May 2001 on 201.182 acres at the northwest corner of Barker Cypress Road and West Road as the site for Cy-Fair College. The process to finalize the site began with a site selection advisory committee appointed by the Chancellor in the Fall of 2000 composed of community residents and board members. They considered several sites looking at size, access and location. The Barker Cypress and West Road site is located almost in the center of the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District with three (3) major thoroughfares feeding the area: the Northwest Freeway (290), Barker Cypress and West Roads.

"Finalizing the land purchase allows us to implement all of the planning that has gone on during the acquisition process," said Diane Troyer, Ph.D., president of Cy-Fair College. "We have not held back on any of our planning but clearly this is one of our significant milestones to bring us to the opening of the college in 2003."

With the land purchase completed, college planners can focus on continuing the development of the campus. Plans include a substantial waterway that will run through the property, providing aesthetic appeal as well as practical function as a retention pond. The waterway will be visible from most of the five major buildings that have been planned so far - the Learning Commons, the Student Center, the Performing & Fine Arts center, and two academic buildings.

Lone Star College-Kingwood College

Kingwood College boasts an average of only 20 students per class, allowing for excellent student/professor interaction and individual attention. Offering the only Institute for Certified Travel Agents in the area, Kingwood College also has thousands of volumes of books as well as Internet access in the Learning Resource Center. The Humble Center is designed to be the college's outreach center, offering credit and non-credit courses to students in the Humble, Atascocita and Beltway areas.

Lone Star College-Tomball

Tomball College has many programs of note, including one of the best veterinary technology programs in the state and the nation. Human services, nursing and accounting are some of the other specialty areas. The Windfern Center in the Cy-Fair Independent School District offers students an alternative to high school. The college provides transfer courses for graduates and advanced students as well as workforce preparation for adults in the region.

Lone Star College-Montgomery College

Montgomery College is the newest campus in the distr4ict, offering a state-of-the-art Learning Resource Center, which helps promote advanced, computerized learning for the growing student population. Biotechnology, nursing, criminal justice, business and journalism attract many students to the campus. The off-site campus for this area is provided in the 16-classroom storefront facility known as the Conroe Center.
