The newest location of Northwest Florida State College, the NWFSC South Walton Center is located off of Highway 331 South and offers a series of college credit and non-credit personal enrichment offerings.
The South Walton Center is the college's seventh area location and its second center in Walton County.
The South Walton Center is developed on 16 acres of a nearly 30 acre site owned by the college that is part of the county's government and education center. South Walton High School, the South Walton Library and the Walton County Government Center are located on adjacent parcels of the more than 110 acres originally acquired by the Walton County Commission from the state of Florida.
The facility consists of four buildings all under the same roofing structure with about 11,000 square feet of administrative and classroom space to serve the growing south Emerald Coast region.
A 3,600 square foot Administrative building provides office space for faculty and staff, a conference room, a staff workroom, restrooms and support spaces. The two classroom buildings totaling 6,000 square feet and consist of five instructional classrooms, each able to accommodate an average class size of 18 to 23 students. Also included is a 1,300 square foot computer laboratory. Other features incorporated into the college's seventh location include exterior courtyards surrounded by integral covered walkways and a signature clock tower. The site was designed with sensitivity to the creation of pedestrian friendly walkways and the preservation of the environment. The architecture of the buildings is influenced by existing South Walton County buildings, as well as that of the notable planned communities nearby, such as Seaside and WaterColor that express a distinctive Florida vernacular.
