Facility Rentals​ offers state of the art facilities for events, lectures, meetings, performances and even weddings for rent​.

OCC Swap Meet​​ features one-of-a-kind used treasures as well as new merchandise. Vendors sell everything from ​produce and fresh flowers to unique crafts.​

The Recycling Center​ serves Orange Coast College and the surrounding community with top-notch recycling services and education in sustainability.   


The ultimate goal of each of these community services is to generate revenue to support campus and classroom activities.  In the 2016-2017 school year the department contributed a total of $3.5 million to the campus.

The department, which also includes the Campus Mailroom and Print Services, takes a Profit, People, Planet approach to its planning and decision making.  The following strategies of the department are part of the OCC's Three-Year Educational Master Plan and align with the College's Vision, Mission, Values, and Strategic Goals and Objectives.
