Hillsborough Community College (HCC) is an accredited, two-year community college with five campuses and more than 44,000 students. HCC is located in the beautiful Tampa Bay region on Florida's west central coast, known for its year-round sunshine, a vibrant cultural scene, some of the best beaches in the world, sports of all kinds and excellent higher education opportunities. HCC students enjoy a unique learning environment with many features not usually found at U.S. community colleges. We offer luxury, on-campus housing at our Hawks Landing student apartment community, nationally ranked athletic programs, a wide range of associate degree programs, dedicated student support services at our Center for International Education and seamless transfer to four-year universities, all at half the cost of most state universities. We help you explore all your university options while you complete your first two years of university study with us. If you want to attend a selective four year college, a liberal arts institution, a nationally ranked university, or an Ivy League school, HCC helps you get there! Graduates from HCC's Honors Institute have gone on to attend some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the U.S. And with a variety of clubs, concert, sporting events and more, you have many opportunities to enjoy fulfilling college experiences beyond the classroom. Tampa Bay boasts a desirable coastal community lifestyle, with world-class sports attractions and cultural venues and great shopping and dining. A sunny, subtropical climate allows for year-round outdoor activities. Local attractions include Busch Gardens and the Florida Aquarium. Popular Florida theme parks such as Walt Disney World are just a short drive away. Average Temperatures: Low (winter): 55°F/13°C High (summer): 90°F/32°C
