When Lone Star College-Kingwood opened in August 1984 as the second Lone Star College it was referred to as the “East campus”. Situated on 273 beautifully landscaped wooded acres, LSC-Kingwood is conveniently located at U.S Highway 59 and Kingwood Drive in the northeast sector of the Lone Star College System.
LSC-Kingwood offers two off-site locations to better serve the rapidly-growing communities of Kingwood, Humble, Atascocita and eastern Montgomery County. The locations include; 1) The LSC-Atascocita Center at 15903 West Lake Houston Parkway, which opened in 2011; and 2) The LSC-EMCID Center at the East Montgomery County Improvement District’s state-of-the-art, high-tech facility. LSC-Kingwood is also now offering credit courses at Splendora and Cleveland High Schools to better serve the residents in the northern part of its service area.
In addition to opening the new LSC-Atascocita Center in 2011, two new buildings were completed and opened on the LSC-Kingwood campus – the Student Conference Center and the Music Instructional Building, both beautiful, state-of-the-art facilities that helped expand services and offerings to students.
LSC-Kingwood’s fall 2014 enrollment for credit students was 12,837.
