Rochester Community and Technical College (RCTC) / UCR
Located in Rochester, Minnesota's fifth largest city, Rochester Community and Technical College (RCTC) is housed at the University Center Rochester (UCR). UCR serves as a regional hub for educational, cultural and recreational activities in one of Minnesota's fastest growing cities.
The University Center Rochester campus is home to Rochester Community and Technical College and Winona State University Rochester Center.
Many changes have taken place in the last 84 years. In 1915, the Rochester Junior College was established, representing the oldest community college in Minnesota. Later, in 1969 the Rochester Area Vocational and Technical Institute opened. By 1986, Winona State University-Rochester Center moved to the Rochester Community College campus and signed a 2+2 agreement with the Community College.
