Hill Country University Center

The Hill Country University Center serves as a hub for higher education in the Texas Hill Country. Located in Fredericksburg’s eastern city limits, the Hill Country University Center serves students in Gillespie, Mason, Llano, Blanco, Kendall, Kerr and Kimble Counties.

The Hill Country University Center was built in 2010 by the Hill Country University Center Foundation, which owns and operates the facility. The Hill Country University Center is a 24,000 square-foot facility that includes seven classrooms, ten offices, a science laboratory, student lounge, computer library, and the H-E-B Community Events Center.

The Hill Country University Center provides an opportunity for our Texas Hill Country students to overcome the three biggest barriers to the pursuit of higher education – availability, proximity to home, and cost. The HCUC serves as a teaching site for our academic partners, Central Texas College and Texas Tech University, where students can pursue associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees while realizing considerable savings without leaving the communities in which they live. Our academic partners provide higher education opportunities while the Hill Country University Center provides the academic facility.

Texas Tech University

The Texas Tech Regional Teaching Site in Fredericksburg is located at the Hill Country University Center in Fredericksburg, Texas and is one of seven regional sites in the State of Texas. 

Students can pursue post-secondary degrees while realizing considerable savings by living and working locally. Students can complete bachelor’s degrees in a variety of disciplines for about 1/3 of the cost of going away to college. The degrees earned from the Texas Tech Regional Site in Fredericksburg are the same as those earned on the main campus in Lubbock. The Texas Tech University Regional Teaching Sites at Fredericksburg makes a Carnegie Tier-One education in Central Texas a reality.
