Columbia College is located in Vienna, VA; Centreville, VA; and Silver Spring, MD. The Vienna campus is located near the Spring Hill Metro Station, which is on the Silver Line of the metro. It is located not far from Tysons Corner Center and Tysons Galleria. There are many delicious places to eat and places to shop in the Tysons Corner area, which is where the campus is located.

Additionally, Tysons Corner is the 12th largest employment center in the US, meaning there is a high demand for labor in the area. This means that Columbia College graduates are more likely to find employment right here in the D.C. metropolitan area than the vast majority of the U.S. cities.
