Texas A&M University is developing plans for a medical campus in the backyard of its traditional rival, the University of Texas.

A&M’s board of regents recently voted to accept a 15-acre donation from the Avery family on which to build a new Health Science Center campus in Round Rock, a suburb of Austin, home of UT’s main campus. A&M will also purchase 10 acres from the Avery family for $1.3 million and can purchase an additional 25 acres if needed. Campus construction would be financed with bonds, officials said.
