SPC is located on the west coast of Florida, where 35 miles of white powdery beaches make it a popular choice to work, play and study. The county averages 361 days of sunshine a year and has close to 588 miles of coastline. The college is minutes away from some of the top beaches in the nation including Fort DeSoto Park and Caladesi Island State Park.

Beyond its natural beauty, the Tampa Bay area offers top name concerts and festivals, professional baseball, hockey and football teams, theme parks and unique restaurants and nightlife. SPC’s Tarpon Springs campus is home to the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art and the college partners with the American Stage Theatre and the Palladium Theater at St. Petersburg College to provide dynamic theater and musical experiences. The Dali Museum recently moved into its new $36 million home on St. Petersburg’s waterfront, complete with gardens and landscape features.
