About the Campus

Austin Community College’s Rio Grande Campus holds an important place in Austin history. In the early 1900s, the campus served middle and high school students until being converted to a college campus in 1975. It now provides higher education opportunities to thousands of students in downtown Austin each year.

ACC Rio Grande Campus’ 100-year-old Main Building is currently undergoing renovation. Building 3000 remains open for classes. When the Rio Grande Main Building reopens, students will have access to state-of-the-art classrooms and laboratories, a 168-seat ACCelerator learning lab, expanded space for ACC’s deaf community, and two enclosed courtyards.


The campus has academic programs intended for university transfer as well as numerous career-technical programs such as American Sign Language-Interpreter Training and Human Services.


Rio Grande will offer limited services during the renovation of the Main Building.
