Situated on the Levine Campus, the Phase III academic building is home to a new library, academic learning center, black box theater, and math emporium. It also has classrooms, healthcare practical and simulation labs, computer labs, and offices.

The main lobby of the building serves as a pre-function space for the Georgia Tucker Fine Arts Hall. This black box theater with retractable tiered seating is designed to maximize flexibility and function as a large classroom, traditional theater, theater in the round, and a community conference space.

The third floor of the building is primarily dedicated to healthcare and includes nurse aid bed labs, procedure labs, medical assisting clinical lab, a simulation lab and administrative instruction lab with adjacent classroom and computer lab space. The dean of nursing and allied health’s office suite is next to the teaching spaces.

The Levine Campus Phase III academic building is the first facility to receive LEED Silver certification on Central Piedmont Community College’s six campuses.
