Round Rock is a thriving city that has become a major center for economic development in Central Texas, while cultivating an excellent quality of life. We are home to global companies and thousands of innovative small businesses, but it is our award-winning schools, healthcare, and fine neighborhoods that really make Round Rock a great place to call home.
Just fifteen miles away from downtown Austin, our residents enjoy all the conveniences of a big city plus the closeness and atmosphere of a small town. We are recognized for our award-winning master plan, park system, and school district, while being one of the safest, most affordable cities in the country.
At approximately 114,000 people, Round Rock is able to maintain a small-town, business-friendly atmosphere while still catering to resident global businesses such as Dell’s corporate headquarters, Emerson Process Management’s division headquarters, and Sears Teleserv.
With nearly 40 percent of Round Rock’s workforce being college-educated, plus access to quality public schools and five higher education campuses including a medical school, you’ll find employees that can fit all of your needs. The highly-acclaimed Round Rock Independent School District provides a world-class education to more than 46,000 students.
Round Rock has a wide array of hospitals and extensive healthcare services. Many of these facilities also serve North Austin and the greater Williamson County area.
As a major component of the Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos metropolitan statistical area, Round Rock has a true workforce and transportation connectivity advantage. Within 200 miles lies a population pool of over 19.1 million people. It is this employee access that allows employers to continue to find qualified talent to fill their opening, even with an unemployment rate that continues to be among the lowest in the region and certainly much lower than the U.S. average.
