The Urban Center of Gateway Community and Technical College


The Urban Center is a Gateway site located in the heart of downtown Covington, KY.

We understand that students are exceptional and that each student presents a unique set of strengths and challenges when deciding to attend college. We know that students can face any number of barriers when starting college including financial, transportation, childcare, and self-confidence. Gateway has created a program that helps reduce these barriers and gives students that live in the urban communities of Northern Kentucky an ‘easy button’ to attending college.

We offer a customized one-stop shop that includes developmental and college-level courses; individual student support and attention in getting started at college including completing the admission, financial aid, advising and the registration process; and many other student support services that increase a students’ success.
