Help Support Our Mission:

Local Voices Through Community Media!

Donate today to help Access Humboldt continue providing high-quality media services in Humboldt County. Your voice matters, and we appreciate all that you do!

Access Humboldt is located on the campus of Eureka High School in the Information Technology Building.

Important Note: Eureka High School is undergoing a complete renovation of the old auto shop building, which is situated in the Del Norte parking lot. As a result, the Del Norte entrance will be closed for most of the school year, and access to our parking spaces will be limited by construction.

Members and visitors can access the Community Media Center in the following ways:

1. For visitors during school hours: access can be gained from either Trinity or K Streets. Drive between the gym and tennis courts (the bollards will be removed during office hours), behind the gym, past our front doors and out to our parking spaces.

2. After 3:30 pm, members and visitors can park in the high school lot between J, K and Trinity streets. Walk around back of the IT Building to the main entrance of the CMC.

The entrance is a red door on the east side facing the football stadium.
