Austin Community College’s Pinnacle campus will close this summer as administrators evaluate the site for possible repairs, renovations or expansions, the college announced Tuesday.
“There is no immediate safety concern, but we recognize that this time frame is the best time to move forward,” ACC’s executive vice president of finance and administration Neil Vickers said in a statement released by the college.
Students, faculty and staff will be moved to other ACC sites and classes scheduled for Pinnacle this summer will be rescheduled at those campuses “with minimal impact to student services and class offerings,” Vickers said.
ACC plans to open new facilities this summer at its Hays and Round Rock campuses and open a new campus in Leander.
The 10-story building on the Pinnacle campus was built in 1984 and will require extensive upgrades, the college said.
According to the statement from the college, officials will also assess options for the property around the Pinnacle site, of which the college owns about 60 acres.
