The Heart of Central Oregon

Located in Central Oregon, COCC campuses are at the heart of the Northwest's best recreation activities—from hiking, mountain biking and skiing to whitewater rafting, kayaking and rock climbing, you can't go wrong. With views of the eight Cascade mountain peaks, Bend is one of the country's most desirable places to live.

Our main campus is located just 2.3 miles from downtown Bend, offering access to an incredible shopping, dining, live music, and entertainment district. While considered a small town at approximately 91,000 residents, Bend offers all the amenities of larger cities. From big chain stores like Fred Meyer, REI, Costco, Target and more to our smaller locally owned shops, students can find all their needs within easy reach of the campus.
