Welcome to El Centro

One college...three campuses

El Centro has grown from just one campus to three campuses - downtown campus, Bill J. Priest campus and West Dallas Campus. The El Centro College downtown campus is no longer just housed in the old Sanger Harris building. Two new buildings are now part of the downtown campus – The R building and the Paramount building where El Centro's Center for Allied Health and Nursing is located. Learn more »
