Student Center houses the school bookstore, a cafeteria, a student lounge with big-screen TV, an air hockey table, and a number of couches, chairs, and tables for students to relax or sleep. It also houses the Student Activities office, which is home to the ACC Student Senate.

Classroom buildings

Eisenhart Hall is the oldest classroom building on campus. A major renovation was completed in April 2006, including a new geothermal heating system, as it previously was poorly climate controlled, and now also houses a SUNY Plattsburgh lecture hall. This building teaches primarily business classes : social science classes: psychology, sociology, history, and political science, though other classes are taught here as well.

Washington Hall is next to Eisenhart Hall and is home to nursing labs, the radio station (WGFR), the television studio (for instructional use), a video editing lab, photography labs and darkroom, and a Mac lab for graphic design/media arts students.

Dearlove Hall houses the math lab, the center for reading and writing (CRW) and the learning specialist's office. The offices of most English and Math professors are located in the basement of this hall. Art, language arts, and mathematics courses are pimarily taught in this building. There is also an art gallery and a small lecture hall.

Scoville Building houses a small café, the library, the computer center, a computer lab, and the computer classrooms. There are only a few non-computer classrooms here, which mainly provide room for overflow from Eisenhart Hall. The top floor houses the Office of the President (Dr. Ron Heacock). The library contains more than 63,000 books, including over 5,000 reference books, and subscribes to over 340 journals and other periodicals.

Science and Humanities building is an academic building that contains all science labs, a performance auditorium, and several music classrooms. Music lessons for 17 instruments and private voice are available for credit to all students, regardless of major.

As of October 15, 2007, work has begun on a new building, the Higher Education Center, which is being built to house multiple classes for the SUNY Plattsburgh extension.
