Bakersfield College

Welcome to Spring 2020

Welcome students spring 2020 semester begins 1/18/2020.

The spring semester begins January 18, 2020. Monday, January 21 is a holiday in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and the campus will be closed. If you have a Monday/Wednesday or a Monday/Wednesday/Friday class meeting time, your first class will be on Wednesday. If you have a Monday only class, your fist class will be held on January 28.

When you return to campus for the Spring 2020 semester, please be aware of some changes to normal routes and access due to Measure J construction. The new Science & Engineering building construction has begun, which will conclude in August 2021. Until then please be aware of the following:

  • The parking lot between SE and IT buildings (P5) will be closed
  • Access to the current SE building will only be available on the south side of the building
  • The SE courtyard will remain open, but only accessible from southeast building doors and the south side of the breezeway. A fence will block access to the sidewalk on the north side of the building.
  • Access to the hallway with the large lecture rooms will be through the SE courtyard and breezeway from the biology lab side of the building
  • A new ramp may be installed in the courtyard to improve ADA access during this time.
  • A portion of the road on the south side of the CSS building (north of the construction) will be closed. This will require pedestrians to use the upper level walking path up the stairs to the PAC building, leading to the east portion of campus. Those requiring an ADA route will need to utilize the elevator at the bottom of the PAC stairs in order to get to the upper level walkway.

While this will take some adjustment, the final result will produce more science labs and classrooms for everyone. Please see paths of travel map on the A Better BC website, along with its text description.

Thank you for your understanding as we work to transform the Bakersfield College campus to meet the growing needs of our students and staff.
