Official ACC Announcement

Pinnacle Campus to close for evaluation beginning Summer 2018

The college is looking at needed repairs, renovations, and possible expansion opportunities 

Austin Community College (ACC) will close its Pinnacle Campus beginning Summer 2018 to evaluate needed repairs, renovations, and possible expansions on site.

Built in 1984, the 10-story building will require extensive work following a series of assessments that identified areas of concern with the building’s facade, accessibility, and current code requirements.

“There is no immediate safety concern, but we recognize that this timeframe is the best time to move forward,” says Neil Vickers, ACC executive vice president of Finance and Administration. “The college is well-positioned to reallocate its students, faculty, staff, and classes to other campuses with minimal impact to student services and class offerings.”

This summer, ACC will open new facilities at its Hays and Round Rock campuses and will open a new campus in Leander.

During Pinnacle’s closure, ACC will perform a more thorough assessment of the building to identify possible resolutions in the best interest of its students and the community. Possible future options include repairing and renovating the building and/or expanding ACC’s presence on other parts of the property. The college owns approximately 60 acres on site.

“We don’t have specifics at this time but feel this is a prime opportunity to examine how we can create a center of excellence to better serve our southwest region,” says Vickers.

Classes scheduled for Pinnacle Campus beginning summer 2018 will be rescheduled at other nearby ACC campuses.
