Campus information

Walters State believes education should be accessible no matter where you live. That's why we have multiple campus sites located through our service area.

Claiborne County Campus
Walters State's Claiborne County Campus moved into the former Claiborne County High School building in August 2010. A total of 10,000 square feet was renovated, including seven classrooms, all of which include SMART technology and one that features video streaming.

Morristown Campus
Serving as Walters State's main campus since it opened in 1970, the Morristown campus includes academic, student services and administrative buildings, a library, and the East Tennessee Regional Public Safety Center.

Greeneville/Greene County Campus
Located in downtown Greeneville, the WSCC Greeneville/Greene County Campus is home to the college's Regional Law Enforcement Academy and its respiratory care program. The college's nursing program was recently expanded to the Greeneville/Greene County Campus.

Sevier County Campus
The Walters State Sevier County Campus includes three buildings: Maples-Marshall Hall, Cates-Cutshall Hall, and the Connor-Short Center. In addition to university parallel programs and signature programs in culinary arts, hotel and restaurant management, and professional entertainment, the college recently expanded its nursing program to the Sevier County Campus.

After Walters State Community College was authorized by the 1967 General Assembly, Hamblen County was chosen by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission as a location. The Tennessee State Board of Education then chose a campus site located on the southeastern edge of the city of Morristown, two miles from the Hamblen County Courthouse. This main campus includes 134 acres of beautiful rolling land that faces east with access roads from the Appalachian Highway. This highway is the connecting link between Interstate 75 in Kentucky and Interstates 81 and 40 into North Carolina and Virginia. The college also occupies modern education facilities in Greeneville, Sevierville, and Tazewell, Tennessee.


Walters State Community College doesn't offer on campus housing. If you're not living with family you will need to budget for food and housing in the Morristown area just like you would for a college with dorms. The estimated rent and meal expense per academic year for off campus housing is $3,600.

Walters State Athletes live in an apartment complex known as Collegewood Apartments. Collegewood is located within a 5 minute walk from the Walters State Campus. For more on Collegewood Apartments call: 423-581-1238
