Beckley Location

Did you know that Concord University also holds classes at the Erma Byrd Center in Beckley? It’s a convenient second location for Concord students who live in the Beckley area, or Mountain Lions who just need a change in scenery! The Erma Byrd Center has free parking, on-site security, Wi-Fi access, two computer labs, and plenty of quiet study places. There are also rooms available for Zoom meetings, and a library with computer access, study areas, and books.

How Can I Take Classes In Beckley?

When creating your schedule for the semester, it’s the same process as creating your schedule for the Athens Campus – no extra steps necessary! All you have to do is check the location of the course you are interested in; if the room is listed as “HEC“, then that class is held at our Beckley Location. You can easily check a course’s location on our Courses Offered page.

Hours of Operation

Monday – Thursday from 7:30 am to 10:00 pm
Friday from 7:30 am to 8:00 pm
Please note that hours vary during holidays, school breaks, summers, and inclement weather. Saturday hours are contingent upon class offerings.

The Erma Byrd Center has a Marketplace where you can grab sandwiches, drinks, and snacks. There is also seating available to eat.

While there is not an official counseling center at the Erma Byrd Center, all students attending Concord have the priviledge of receiving free counseling services. If you are attending at the Beckley Location, you can either receive counseling via telehealth, or a counselor can be sent to campus for you.

Chess Club – The Concord University Chess Club meets at our Beckley Location Thursdays from 4-8pm in room W35. For additional information, please visit our Facebook page or contact R. Keith Lilly.

Student Government Association – While SGA meetings are held on the Athens Campus (Thursdays at 4pm in Conference Room AB, on the 3rd floor of the Jean & Jerry Beasley Student Center), there is still plenty that a student attending at our Beckley Location can do to be involved with this organization! The SGA’s Beckley Committee seeks to keep students at the Erma Byrd Center connected with the main campus of Concord University, and is open to new members. SGA also has a Zoom link for their meetings if you would like to attend virtually. Contact the SGA to learn more!
