FALLBROOK, Calif. (KGTV) - Palomar College officials extended their campus offerings this week, opening a new 82-acre "Interim Village" complex in Fallbrook.

The 20,640-square-foot North County extension will offer 40 courses this summer, ranging from biology and nursing to business and sociology. The campus includes two science labs, a computer lab, seven new classrooms, a learning resource center, and room for faculty and administration.

Students who are only taking courses at the campus may park for free as well.

Palomar's District Governing Board President Paul McNamara said the campus is the first phase of extending services to the Bonsall and Fallbrook region.

“This beautiful new center is a testament to our commitment to the voters in the district and to the communities we serve here in this region,” McNamara said in a release. “And this is just the beginning of what is planned here in the future."

The campus is situated two miles from SR-76, on the east side of Interstate 15. Fallbrook's campus is Palomar College's fifth major in addition to the college's campus sites, including in San Marcos, Escondido, Ramona, and Rancho Bernardo, the latter of which also opened this summer.
