When it opened in September 1964, the Douglas Campus represented the pioneering spirit of a new college. The site between Douglas and Bisbee was selected as the most practical for serving the major population centers of the time. Today, this traditional campus is home to a number of academic buildings that house classrooms, faculty and staff offices, and computer labs, as well as a full-service library, an aviation program with its own airport, residence halls, athletic facilities, and a cafeteria. It is often considered the most scenic Cochise College location.
