About Gavilan College
Gavilan College was originally established in 1919 as San Benito County Junior College. It operated under this title until 1963, when a new community college district was drawn that included both San Benito and southern Santa Clara Counties. Successful passage of a local bond in 1966 provided the needed funds to construct the present campus at Santa Teresa Boulevard in Gilroy.
The Gavilan Joint Community College District is comprised of 2,700 square miles encompassing southern Santa Clara and most of San Benito County.

Important information about campus drinking water
Gavilan College upgraded its water system this year. During the process, the District inadvertently overlooked some monitoring or testing for drinking water standards prior to the start-up of the new well, violating monitoring regulations. Even though this monitoring violation was not an emergency, you have a right to know what you should do, what happened, and what we did to correct this situation.
Registration is still open for late-start classes
