LSC-University Park

In 2007, community leaders approached Lone Star College System requesting that a new university center be established in the northwest Harris County area. In 2009, LSCS purchased the buildings and property of what was once Compaq Computer Corporation’s world headquarters on State Highway 249 at Louetta Road. The resulting facility, LSC-University Park, the system’s sixth college, opened for classes in spring 2010.

It is designed to be a college as well as an incubator for innovative partnerships between education, business and industry, and the community. Along with two-year degrees and certificates in many areas, LSC-University Park also offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees at the LSC-University Center at University Park, through partnerships with a number of four-year universities. LSC-University Park also houses LSC-Online, the Veterans Affairs Center, Lone Star Corporate College and the Lone Star College Conference Center. LSC-University Park is one location with many opportunities, making higher education convenient, affordable and accessible to the northwest Harris County community.

LSC-University Park’s fall 2012 enrollment for credit students was 5,564.
