Introducing ILR at TCC

The Institute of Learning in Retirement is a group of active seniors who are committed to life-long learning.  Based at the Virginia Beach campus of Tidewater Community College, we enjoy intellectually stimulating lectures,  discussion groups, social events, and trips.  

For a yearly membership fee you will receive a quarterly schedule of our programs and events.  Classes, trips, discussion groups, and socials require registration and payment.  Read more to see if joining ILR might enrich your retirement life as well.


Anyone age 55 or older is welcome to join without regard to race, creed, color, or gender.  Read***** more about our organization. 

Welcome to the Princess Anne Building at Tidewater Community College.
The ILR office is Room 103 inside this building.
To attend a class, park in Lot 1 or 2. Proceed down sidewalk between the Lynnhaven and Blackwater buildings toward Pungo in the distance.
Keeping going toward the door.
Most ILR classes will take place in F-133, the lecture hall in Pungo.
If you exit the Pungo Building from the back door, you will have this view of the Student Center. The cafe is on your left and the elevator entrance on your right.
If you park in Lot 7, you have this view of the Student Center. Cross the bridge.
Once you cross the bridge to the Student Center, enter this door to go to the desired floor.

Find your way around

Members are finding the campus easy to navigate, thanks to the helpful guards in Lots 1 and 2 and our reserved parking section marked by red cones.  

Check the schedule of classes in the Winter 2020 session and join your friends at TCC.  Remember that most but not all classes will be in the Pungo Building (F).  Our business office is in the Princess Anne Building (A), which is the one near the flags and dolphin sculpture.
