Laredo Community College, or LCC, was established as Laredo Junior College on September 28, 1947, by the Laredo Independent School District in Laredo, the county seat of Webb County in south Texas. It adopted the present name in 1993.
Throughout a period of time the Main Campus (located at historic Fort McIntosh) also housed both the former Laredo State University and Texas A&I University at Laredo, which later relocated as Texas A&M International University to its new campus off the Bob Bullock Loop in northeast Laredo. The district since expanded in 2004 to include two campuses—the Main Campus and the South Campus.
As defined by the Texas Legislature, the official service area of LCC includes the municipality of Laredo and all of Webb, Jim Hogg and Zapata counties.
