FAIRMONT — Pierpont Community & Technical College has announced its plan to move some of its classrooms and administrative offices from its shared campus with Fairmont State University to Veterans’ Square in downtown Fairmont.

Pierpont president Dr. Doreen Larson said leasing the space will enable the institution to establish an independent city campus.

According to Larson, programs and services will be transitioned to the new location in phases. Beginning in July, phase one of the project will see the movement of administrative offices such as marketing and communication and recruitment. Programs in the School of Human Services will also be moved during that time.
