There are 25 classrooms for instruction that are designed to transform teaching and learning by using smart technology. The Northline Campus is equipped with two math computer labs, two biology labs, one chemistry lab, one business technology lab, a cosmetology lab, a computer drafting lab and a 10,000-square-foot library.

The Northline Campus has a one-stop shop for registration and admissions, a bookstore, student life center, job placement center and a community room. Northline campus also provides counseling, financial aid, tutoring, assessment testing and a cashier's office.

HCC Northeast was established in July 1991, when the HCC Board of Trustees reorganized the System into regional colleges designed to put education back into the neighborhoods. The former Northline Mall Center opened for classes in spring 1993 with approximately 50 students. The mall location introduced a new educational concept, becoming the first "Campus in a Mall" in the greater Houston area to become a full-service community college. Over the years, Northline Center increased enrollment, and currently serves over 3,500 students per semester.
