AUSTIN - Virginia College has moved its Austin campus into the former Chaparral Ice Center on I-35 in North Austin.

Birmingham, Alabama-based Education Corporation of America (ECA) owns Virginia College and finished renovating the ice rink in 2012.

ECA chose to use the space for the Austin campus of Virginia College when its lease ended at 6301 E. Hwy. 290, campus President Harvey Giblin said.

The campus moved in April to the new site, which uses mostly solar panels and wind turbines to power the 43,375-sf campus.

The campus will host a grand opening celebration June 4.
