The Perry Center

Did you know that Tidewater Community College is once again driving  economic development in Hampton Roads with several major projects?  None is more transformational than the TCC Perry Center for Visual & Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management.

We build a better community through education

TCC improves lives through quality, affordable education accessible to everyone in Hampton Roads. We are helping the region meet the needs of a 21st century workforce.


TCC is the 2nd largest community college in Virginia.

TCC has 13 nationally accredited academic programs.

TCC is the college of choice for nearly 1 in 5 high school graduates in South Hampton Roads.

1/3 of TCC’s enrollment is made up of active duty military, veterans and families.

In 2017-18, TCC provided academic and workforce education to nearly 40,000 individuals.

3 in 5 TCC graduates have no student debt, thanks in part to TCC Educational Foundation scholarships.


Your donation to the TCC Scholarship Fund makes education a reality for aspiring students like scholarship recipient Jessica Evans, a December 2017 graduate. A military veteran and a mother, Jessica is transferring to Norfolk State University to major in construction technology. Last year alone, we received over 14,000 applications for 300 scholarships.

With your support, we can help many more students like Jessica.
