The shuttle runs Monday – Thursday, 7:00 a.m. – 5:41 p.m. We recommend that students who travel from GRCC’s main campus for an evening class to Sneden Hall park their car first at Sneden Hall at the DeVos Campus and take the shuttle to the main campus. This traffic pattern will allow the student to catch the Sneden Hall Shuttle back to Sneden Hall for the evening class and have direct access to their vehicle.

“The Grand Rapids Community College DeVos Campus brings a new level of commitment to our community and higher education.” said Dr. Steven C. Ender, President, Grand Rapids Community College. “We purchased the former Davenport campus with the premise we would be able to open our doors to more students who need distinctive, valuable, quality education. Gifts from the DeVos and VanderWeide families ensure our ability to open new doors and amazing learning opportunities to students this fall.”
The 7-acre campus was purchased by GRCC in June 2009. Partial renovations to the first floor of the classroom building were completed and GRCC welcomed 1200 students for the fall semester. The current renovation allows for 4700 students to experience and learn in innovative ways. During this past summer, major renovations were completed on both floors of the classroom building, including new infrastructure, HVAC, wi-fi, décor, furniture and new technology in the 25 new classrooms. In addition to expanded space for classrooms and student services, the Grand Rapids Community College DeVos Campus will ease transportation and parking congestion. The DeVos Campus provides 540 parking spaces to students who attend GRCC classes in the densely populated downtown area. A shuttle passes between the GRCC DeVos and Main campuses at 20-minute intervals to assist students in travel between classes.
Two 53-ft. semis pulled up next to Sneden Hall Tuesday morning packed to the gills. Seen here are movers unloading, rolling and stacking boxes of chairs – 253 boxes in this particular pile – from the first truck, while the second one waits in the wings. And that’s just the chairs; Wednesday the tables arrive! And there will be even more trucks daily…but everything will be ready when students arrive August 30.
Wednesday night an open house was held at Sneden Hall for neighbors and Heritage Hill board members. Following a brief tour, Dr. Ender talked about college plans and the vision for the new space; Vicki Janowiak provided answers on classrooms and high traffic times; Diane Patrick discussed administrative information and contact information; Bob Partridge gave a historical perspective on our relationships with the neighborhood and told the group, “We want to be good neighbors.” Harold Woolworth was on hand, too, and fielded many questions about…guess what…parking and street traffic control.
Two ESP groups have been scheduled for a guided tour at Sneden Hall this week. The first group (pictured above) toured Tuesday with another scheduled for Friday. The tours were coordinated by ESP President, Misty McClure-Anderson and guided by Vicki Janowiak. The tours are intended to help the ESP become familiar with Sneden Hall, giving them a visual to be able to answer questions that will be asked by students as the new semester gets underway.
A team meets weekly to assure that our newly acquired Sneden Hall (up on the Fulton St. hill) is renovated, supplied, decorated, and wired for phones, printers, lights, security call boxes, parking arms, video and audio. And vending machines!
Wednesday, the team watched as Bryan Wible raised the GRCC flag for the first time alongside new Michigan and American flags. It looks great up there, and in a few short weeks the classrooms will look great, too. We’ll be offering 70 class sections at Sneden Hall and there are only a handful that aren’t already full .
