Austin Community College – San Gabriel Campus

In May 2016, Austin Community College broke ground on its new 100-acre, $60 million San Gabriel Campus in Leander. The first phase of construction will include a 106,000-square-foot building for classrooms, offices, the library, a student services area, common areas, and the ACCelerator, a high-tech lab geared to address student needs in mathematics and English.

If you live in the Leander ISD, part of your property tax dollars help pay for Austin Community College, and your family qualifies for the special “in-district” tuition rate intended to make college and continuing education classes more affordable. Students can work towards a 2-year Associates degree and adults often go to ACC to brush up on their career/professional skills or learn a new hobby.

The new San Gabriel Campus will serve one of the fastest-growing areas in the region and relieve crowding at ACC’s Cypress Creek and Round Rock campuses. The first phase will open in 2018.
