For many years, Bakersfield College has held classes in the southwest area at various locations including Stockdale High School and Bakersfield Christian High School to better serve the needs of the southwest and northwest Bakersfield Community. In January of 2022, BC Southwest opened the doors of its brand new center located in southwest Bakersfield, on the southwest corner of the CSU Bakersfield campus, right across from the Marketplace. The new three-story facility houses over 30 classrooms, including 2 large classrooms, three computer labs, three science labs, a student lounge, a study area, faculty offices, a book store, and comprehensive on-site student services.
