Located on 60-acres just south of University Boulevard and comprised of five unique buildings, the new ACC Round Rock Campus is entirely inclusive, offering a wide range of curricula including professional radiology, nursing, health and kinesiology, computer science, advanced technology, automotive technology, building construction and continuing education. The new campus is a landmark example of the skill and knowledge that GSC Architects can bring to a project, creating not one but five distinct, highly-technical buildings. These buildings were carefully designed with their own personality while also incorporating common design elements that were a visual foundation for a more cohesive campus.
The Austin Community College Round Rock Campus Phase I is the college’s most ambitious project in its 35-year history and opened on time and at full capacity.
ACC and the design team focused on creating community areas. Places where students could gather, interact, and study were integrated into the design of the buildings and the exterior campus features to cultivate a campus community.
