About Cambridge Campus
The Cambridge Campus is 40 miles north of Minneapolis, Minnesota on the western edge of the city of Cambridge, a rural environment within Isanti County. The 128.8-acre campus is located on a bluff on the banks of the Rum River. The Cambridge Campus offers many career and degree options and four bachelor programs.
The Cambridge Campus opened in 1978 as East Central Community College Service Center at Cambridge in a wing of the Cambridge Memorial Hospital. Construction began on the permanent site in 1981. The former Cambridge Campus Instruction Services building was constructed by Cambridge Development Corporation and leased to the state of Minnesota. The name was changed to Cambridge Center-Anoka-Ramsey Community College in 1983. Due to a $8.5 M appropriation, the first portion of the current facility opened in 1996 called Cambridge Campus Center and included a library, student services, bookstore, biology and chemistry labs, a few general classrooms and administrative space. A Cambridge Campus 34,000 sq. ft. addition opened in 2007 after extensive efforts by local legislators, community members, college employees and students. Today, the facility encompasses 121,362 sq. ft.
