The main building at the Rio Grande Campus will close mid-May. The campus will remain open to students, offering more than 100 classes in Building 3000. The main building is expected to reopen in fall 2019.
The college has worked to minimize disruption to current and future students. Some classes are moving to nearby campuses including Highland, Eastview, and Riverside. A small number of classes have been converted to distance learning courses or hybrid courses that combine classroom and online learning.
Campus offices and faculty will begin moving in late May and early June. Over the summer Arts and Humanities programs will begin their permanent move to ACC Highland inside the former mall area, where they will be housed with a future Creative and Digital Arts Center. The college’s American Sign Language & Interpreter Training and Human Services program departments, as well as Rio Grande campus management and police, will be in Building 3000 during construction.
