Providing access to a high-quality college education for students throughout the greater Meriden area, that’s the Meriden Center mission. A convenient, downtown center helps meet that mission.
Students choose to study at the Meriden Center for a variety of reasons. Many are working full- or part-time, some are single parents, others are working to improve their job opportunities. Some simply want to live at home while earning a college degree.
Meriden Center students experience a vibrant, student-centered learning environment. Each campus, off site classroom, or Center has its own character, but all provide the excellence in education that is a Middlesex Community College tradition.
Meriden Center students have options. They can begin their studies at the Meriden Center and later attend the main campus in Middletown to complete their chosen degree. Or they can complete an entire program of study at the Meriden Center, graduating with a Middlesex Community College associate in science degree either in General Studies or Technology Studies: Machine Manufacturing Technology.
The College’s open admissions policy allows all students with a high school diploma or GED to be admitted. All students commute; the Meriden Center and the main campus have no residence halls. MxCC also participates in dual enrollment programs for students to earn high school credit and college credit at the same time.
For more information, please call 203-608-3000.

MxCC Emergency Response Team
Middlesex Community College has an Emergency Response Team (ERT). The 17 member staff and faculty team is certified in First Aid, CPR and use of the AED. Members are at the main campus in Middletown, the Meriden Center and at the PMI lab in Meriden. Although the College does not have a medical center or nurses office, our ERT members are trained to assist people in need of medical attention – first by calling 911, then by helping those in need until First Responders arrive.
In Middletown, the Emergency Response Team hotline is x46377 from any campus phone.
In Meriden, the Emergency Response Team hotline is x46333 from any campus phone.
We are re-certified every 2 years. The group meets twice during each Fall and Spring semester to talk about our experiences, review protocol and stay sharp.
An AED, Automated External Defibrillator, is a portable electronic device, used on people who are unresponsive, that diagnoses cardiac arrest and transmits electrical shocks in order to reestablish an effective heart rhythm. Each of our AEDs are checked on a monthly basis to ensure they are working properly and supplies are stocked. If someone asks you to get the AED, do not hesitate to retrieve the AED and bring it to the scene. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with the locations of the AEDs.
It is important for everyone to know that anyone can use an AED. You do not have to be certified to use one. The AED will not deploy shocks if it senses that the person doesn’t need them. You cannot hurt anyone by using an AED. An instructional video has been placed here so that all can see how to operate the machine.
