Construction Update

Region One ESC is excited to announce the construction of the Region One Conference Center, a 1,200-seat capacity auditorium style facility, that will allow us to better serve our school districts and provide expanded learning opportunities. Construction is set to get underway in July 2019, check here for parking and building entrance information. 


Parking for all participants/visitors will be available in the east-side parking lot, west-side parking lot, or the southwest parking lot adjacent to the UTRGV soccer field. (Click here to view the parking map.)

Region One staff parking area will be in the designated southeast parking lot adjacent to the warehouse. Overflow staff parking area will be the southwest parking lot next to the law office building.


Participants/Visitors to the Region One facility will need to enter the building either on the east-side entrance or west-side entrance (please follow signage). The front entrances (on Schunior Street) will be closed.

To assist you in selecting which entrance will be nearest to your meeting room:

  • West side building entrance-Meeting room names are those of the seven-county area that encompasses Region One (Hidalgo Room, Cameron Room, Webb Room, Starr Room, and Zapata Room).
  • East side building entrance-Meeting rooms names are those of historical landmarks in the Region One area (Fort Ringgold Room, Fort McIntosh Room, La Lomita Room, Sal Del Rey Room, Falcon Dam Room, and Point Isabel Room which is located on the Second Floor).

We apologize for the inconveniences this construction project might present, but we certainly appreciate your understanding and cooperation!
