HOUSTON — The Lone Star College System has acquired a significant portion of the Hewlett Packard North Campus, located at the intersection of State Highway 249 and Louetta Road in northwest Houston. The college purchased eight major buildings totaling 1.2 million square feet, as well as parking garages and other support structures for the buildings. The campus had previously housed Compaq’s world headquarters. The purchase will provide the college with space for a new University Center for north Harris County, an instructional satellite campus, a Corporate College conference and training facility, and College System administration and support space. Classes will be held at the location starting in spring 2010. The new campus is more than double the size of school’s largest campus, Lone Star College – CyFair, which is located in Cypress, Texas. Terms of the deal were not released.
