Campus Revitalization Project

Welcome to the Campus Revitalization Project (CRP) webpage!

The Campus Revitalization Project—giving new life to the SAC community—includes the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) and various campus beautification and construction projects.

This webpage will provide the latest updates and information related to the College's revitalization efforts.

About the CIP

In May of 2017, Bexar County voters approved a general obligation bond and awarded San Antonio College $83 million to make necessary improvements to current buildings and add new facilities. 

In conjunction with various Campus Beautification Projects led by the Office of the Vice President of College Services, the CIP will provide new construction and renovations to existing buildings.

  • There are numerous VIA bus stops located around campus and highlighted on the SAC Campus Map. If you plan to ride the bus, you can use the VIA Metropolitan Transit Plan Your Trip Tool to find the best route for you.

    If you would like to use the park and ride at North Star Mall, VIA recommends using Route 3.

    Route 3 is a skip service route with only three stops to/from North Start Mall and the SAC campus! The route takes approximately 20 minutes.

    Eligible students can get a semester bus pass from the Business Office located in the Fletcher Administration Center (FAC) 2nd floor.

  •  

    The San Antonio College administration is currently seeking opportunities for students and employees to park off-site and shuttle to/from campus. 

     More information is coming soon!
