LEANDER - The 100-acre parcel of land for the Austin Community College (ACC) Leander campus near Toll 183A and Hero Way has sat undeveloped since 2010 when it was purchased, but ACC’s plans for the campus are now moving forward.

"ACC Leander will open in summer 2018 and will have an initial capacity for about 2,000 students, relieving the overcrowded Cypress Creek campus in Cedar Park," ACC board Vice Chairman Allen Kaplan said.

More than 5,000 students attend the Cypress Creek campus, which has a capacity of about 3,400.

In fall 2010, there were 1,383 Leander residents attending ACC classes; in fall 2014, there were 1,413.

The new campus will have a library, media center, computer labs and multipurpose rooms.
