In 2000, 83 percent of Laredo voters approved a bond for the construction of a new campus in Laredo’s southern region. Four years later, the affectionately named “South Campus” opened with great fanfare, sporting contemporary architecture and state-of-the-art equipment and programs. The 60-acre campus nestled near the banks of the Rio Grande contains seven buildings, including an academic and advanced technology building, a full-service library, and a state-of-the-art child development lab. Other anchor programs at the South Campus are transportation technology, where students learn the latest techniques in automotive technology and repair, and the South Texas Border Regional Police Academy, which houses the area’s first indoor firing range. The South Campus also offers core curriculum courses so students don’t have to travel between two campuses for their studies.

Completion of a comprehensive recreational complex is on the horizon for the South Campus, as well as expanded student activities to add more student life to the young campus.
