Recently, we started an exploratory series with our college campuses. During each installment, we’ll focus on one Unitek campus, its programs, and the surrounding area. Today we’re going to take a look at one of our campuses in the San Francisco Bay Area: Unitek Fremont!
In 2002, Unitek College began offering healthcare education at the Fremont Campus. Soon we began offering a Medical Assistant program and, in 2004, we entered the nursing education landscape by establishing a Vocational Nursing program at Fremont. Additionally, in 2010 the U.S. Department of Education approved Unitek Fremont to participate as a Title IV awarding institution.
In many ways, Unitek College began with the Fremont Campus. There students will find various programs for the next generation of healthcare professionals. These include classes for aspiring Medical Assistants and Vocational Nurses, two occupations that fill critical roles on the healthcare team.

About the Campus
The Fremont Campus is located near the I-880 highway. Tucked into the corner of Auto Mall Parkway and S. Grimmer Boulevard, the campus is within distance of a 24 Hour Fitness and several restaurants. It occupies more than 50,000 square feet, allowing students to utilize 13 classrooms, 10 labs, a library, and a student lounge. Fremont also maintains a reception area and both faculty and administrative offices.
Let’s break that down a little more, though! Check out these factoids about our classroom and lab environment…
• The Fremont campus contains 5 labs—2 skills labs and 3 simulation labs.
• Each has patient care stations, simulating actual healthcare facility settings.
• The main skills lab offers a study area for students with tables and chairs, plus cabinets with library books and films.
• Each lab has storage cabinets for supplies and all necessary equipment such as: IV poles, enteral feeding pumps; blood pressure cuffs, scales; adult and pediatric mannequins; and equipment to practice common nursing care.
And here are some other facts about the Fremont Campus!
+ Capped classes. The Medical Assisting program is capped at 40 students. Consequently, this allows instructors to spend more time with each student, and each student is given a greater opportunity to have their voice be heard.
+ Morning & night schedule. While it depends on the program, Unitek Fremont is usually open on weekdays from 8:00 am to 10:50 pm. On Saturdays, Fremont may be open for testing by appointment.
