Less than two months into its first fall semester, Austin Community College’s San Gabriel campus had 893 students, according to ACC data.
After beginning construction in 2016 the community college district’s newest campus opened in Leander in May and welcomed its first students during the fall semester. The San Gabriel campus—located in the city’s transit-oriented development district, or TOD—was funded by 2014 voter-approved bonds totaling $60 million.
“The campus is intended to help expand educational services to this part of the district and help relieve overcrowding at other campuses,” ACC spokesperson Jessica Vess said.
