The school has spread into three primary campuses: a main Winchester campus near Interstate 81, the Health Professions campus located near the Winchester Medical Center, and the Northern Virginia Campus, located in the town of Leesburg. Satellite facilities are also located throughout Winchester, and student housing is available near each of these learning centers.
