Dell, Emerson pull South University to Round RockDell, Emerson pull South University to Round Rockhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=49872014-02-10T15:12:00Z2014-02-10T06:45:00Z

ROUND ROCK - South University, based in Georgia, will construct a $7 million, 42,000-sf campus adjacent to the Emerson buildings at 1100 W Louis Henna Blvd. W.

South University will become the fourth higher education campus within Round Rock’s city limits. The city already hosts Austin Community College, Texas State University–Round Rock and the Texas A&M Health Science Center campuses.

South University has agreed to lease the property through at least December 31, 2018, and retain at least 55 full-time employees by the fifth year of the agreement.

Construction on the campus will begin soon after the property closes on the land this month. The school hopes to have the new campus open by February 2015.

South University opened its first Central Texas campus in November 2011 at a vacant office complex on West Parmer Lane in Austin.

It now appears, however, that South University’s time in Austin was only a temporary stop before a new arrangement could be secured with Round Rock.

South University is an accredited university with 13 campuses in nine states. The school offers a variety of four-year graduate and undergraduate degree programs. The Austin campus includes business administration, criminal justice and nursing programs.
