The Cocoa Campus also boasts two joint-use facilities with the University of Central Florida — the EFSC/UCF Joint Use Library (Building 12) and the Clark Maxwell, Jr. Lifelong Learning Center (Building 3) — and a STEM building designed to house classrooms, labs and workforce facilities targeting the subjects of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Also located on the Cocoa Campus is the Bernard Simpkins Fine Arts Center, home to the College's choral and instrumental music programs plus the theatre program. The Simpkins stage also features numerous community events. Along the shores of Clear Lake, the Gen. George F.
