Kight out morningFifty-four buildings on 362 beautifully landscaped acres compose IRSC’s Main Campus in the coastal city of Fort Pierce. Reflecting the diversity of IRSC students and their interests, the Main Campus encompasses such specialized facilities as the Brown Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the Kight Center for Emerging Technologies, Treasure Coast Public Safety Training Complex, Mary L. Fields Health Science Center, Florida State University College of Medicine Regional Campus, Brinkley Science Center and Hallstrom Planetarium, a world class aquatic complex, a modern child development center, a physical fitness lab, a physical therapy assistant training center, and a large, comfortable student center.

The 65,000 square-foot Brown Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship is constructed to "silver LEED" standards for green construction, using recycled materials. The multi-purpose Center prepares students for cutting-edge careers in emerging technologies, particularly in energy-related fields, and provides programs and services to entrepreneurs and business start-ups gearing up to create new types of jobs.

The College’s Kight Center is one of the nation’s most technologically sophisticated educational facilities. With an advanced manufacturing suite, photonics laboratory, engineering and digital media laboratory, and editing suite/virtual studio, it provides highly innovative instruction in evolving technologies and serves as an unprecedented resource for economic development.

The 50-acre Treasure Coast Public Safety Training Complex is the nation’s most comprehensive center for education and professional development in criminal justice, emergency management, homeland security and fire science. The state-of-the-art complex attracts professionals in these fields from around the nation and world for seminars and conferences.

In conjunction with Florida State University, a regional campus of the FSU College of Medicine was established on the IRSC Main Campus. This community-based medical school directs clinical rotations for third and fourth year medical students and supports regional development of a strong knowledge-based economy linked to science and medicine.

The Brinkley Science Center provides a technologically advanced setting for the study of math and science complemented by a unique astronomy classroom - the Hallstrom Planetarium. The Mary L. Fields Health Science Center houses 14 laboratory suites and classrooms which simulate “real world” health care environments, including a hospital emergency room, nursing ward, dental clinic, and medical laboratory.

The Tomeu Center for Career and Academic Advancement is specifically designed to serve students preparing for a GED®, developing English language skills, preparing for American citizenship or transitioning into career training and upper-division studies at IRSC.

The IRSC Fine Arts Complex which includes the McAlpin Fine Arts Center, Wynne Black Box Theatre, Fee Dance Studio, Art Gallery and music and drama rehearsal rooms emphasizes IRSC’s commitment to the development of well-rounded students and inspires participation in the arts and cultural activities.
