Lone Star College-Houston North will welcome students to its new Fallbrook campus at the start of the spring semester Jan. 19.

As previously reported by Community Impact Newspaper, LSC-Houston North Fallbrook is the fourth campus for LSC-Houston North, which also includes the Fairbanks, Greenspoint and Victory campuses. The new $13 million campus was built in collaboration with Fallbrook Church and is located on the church's campus at 12512 Walters Road, Houston.

"This location is the best example of a community-based partnership that I have encountered during my 18 years in higher education," LSC-Houston North President Dr. Quentin Wright said in a statement. "I commend Pastor [Michael] Pender, and Lone Star College Chancellor, Dr. Stephen C. Head, for their commitment to increasing college attainment in the North Houston community."

The 51,000-square-foot facility will be able to accommodate 3,500 students. It features nine traditional classrooms, each with the capacity for 24 students; four computer classrooms; two science labs; one collaboration-based classroom; a warehouse lab, which will serve as a central food distribution hub for all LSC-Houston North campuses; and a student services area. The campus also features counseling services, a food pantry, mobile tutoring, several open study areas and a testing center.

Programs offered at the Fallbrook campus include associate of arts, teacher preparation, logistics management, gaming design, mobile app design and associate of science.


Registration is currently open for all LSC-Houston North locations, including the new Fallbrook campus. The college will host two in-person Super Saturday events Jan. 9 and 16 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. during which students can visit with representatives from LSC's admissions, advising and financial aid departments.
