Academic Support Services (The Hub)

Mission: To provide Ellsworth Community College students, staff, and faculty with resources and services designed to foster success, persistence, and overall student development.

Jessica in the HUB advising students

Ellsworth Community College provides a variety of academic support services to help students be successful. Most of these services are housed in The Hub, located in the lower level of Kruse Main Hall (entrance via ramp on the south side of the building). The goal of The Hub is to provide a setting in which students can study/relax/collaborate as well as find all the academic support services they need. The Hub offers group and individual study areas, study pods, a small conference room for groups, and a large conference room. We’ve listed several resources below that will be helpful to you. If you aren’t sure which of these departments or services to use, email and we’ll put you in touch with the right person!

  • Monday: 8 am to 7 pm
  • Tuesday: 8 am to 4:30 pm
