Although GTC does not support any housing or food services for its students or faculty, there is almost always some sort of activity taking place. There are various departmental clubs along with councils and government and professional organizations. Situated in a large town setting, the campus is clean, calm, quiet, and safe and in close proximity to fast food restaurants and movie theaters. It is accessible by public transportation, has plenty of parking for those who commute to school by car, and is home to a technology center and early education center. The technology center has space for meetings, exhibits, conferences, and classes, while the early education center provides students with real-life opportunities to observe children in their classrooms as part of their programs of study.
GTC recently started planning for a new satellite campus in Alpharetta, Georgia given that it is the 11th fastest growing public two year college of its size in the country. The college recently conferred more than 3,100 graduate awards making it the first technical college to do so. Gwinnett Technical College does more than just confer degrees, however; through its career services center, the school helps students with job searches via an online job board, career fairs, the career service center library, and the application of career assessment instruments.
GTC is committed to its students' success and is known for preparing them well. The school is dedicated to workforce development and employs faculty that are experts in their fields and have strong connections to their area of focus and/or industry. Gwinnett Technical College graduates are in high demand because of the school's reputation for producing highly skilled and prepared employees across many fields of study.
