Texas State University Round Rock Campus (RRC) is the official name of Texas State University’s campus in Round Rock, Texas, located 20 miles (32 km) north of Austin. Construction began on the campus in 2004 and opened for the Fall 2005 semester. The campus hosts upper-level classes for bachelor's degrees, courses for master's degrees and post bachelor's certificate programs.
Texas State University Round Rock Campus, previously known as the Round Rock Higher Education Center (RRHEC), was established in 1996 with just a few classes and grew rapidly. By 2004, the 15 temporary buildings in a lot adjacent to Westwood High School were full to capacity. In 2003, the Avery family of Round Rock donated 101 acres in northeast Round Rock to allow the former RRHEC to create its own campus. Construction of the Avery Building began in 2004, and the building opened its doors on August 26, 2005. The 125,000-square-foot Avery Building was designed to offer instruction and student support in one building. It includes classrooms, labs, offices, and a library. In 2010 the Round Rock Campus opened the 77,740-square-foot, three-story Nursing Building. The St. David’s School of Nursing admitted the first class of junior-level nursing majors in the fall 2010 semester. Ground Breaking for the Health Professions Building addition to the Texas State Round Rock Campus is May 2016.
The Round Rock Campus offers the junior and senior level classes to complete a bachelor's degree as well as graduate degrees, post baccalaureate certification and continuing education programs. Students can complete their first two years (freshman and sophomore level classes) at the Texas State University San Marcos campus, any community college, or transfer to the RRC from another school. Courses at the RRC are offered at convenient times close to where students live and work.
