What's New at Ohlone for Fall 2014!
It's an exciting time at Ohlone as preparation is underway for the new Academic Core on the Fremont campus. The Academic Core will be a new core of academic buildings which will house most of the educational offerings on the Fremont campus at Ohlone.
As a result of the 2012 District Facilities Master Plan, it was identified that many of the existing buildings needed to be replaced, which will allow the Fremont campus to become more accessible to students as well as meeting current codes and energy efficiencies.
Academic programs that will be included in the new Academic Core buildings include Science, Arts, General Education, and Learning Resources (Tutoring, Library, study areas, etc.). The new Academic Core buildings will replace existing Buildings 1, 2, and 8 on the Fremont campus.
In preparation for the new Academic Core on the Fremont campus, portable classrooms will be used starting Fall 2014. The portable classrooms will be located in Parking Lots B and C on the Fremont campus and in Parking Lot A on the Newark campus.
Portables for general calssrooms will be available starting Fall 20914; portables for labs and offices will be available starting Spring 2015.
How do I know if my Fall class is located in a portable?
- All classes in portables on the Fremont campus have FP (for "Fremont Portable") as part of the room number. Example: Room FP-5.
- All classes in portables on the Newark campus have NP (for "Newark Portable") as part of the room number. Example: Room NP-7.
See the screenshot below of BIOL-105 sections that are located in portables at Fremont and Newark.
