St. John Encampment Commons and UFCU Pavilion

The UFCU Pavilion at St. John Encampment Commons at ACC Highland

With roots as a Reconstruction-era gathering ground for African-American Baptists, ACC Highland’s newest green space honors the rich history of community, education, and empowerment. The 2.5 acres of community space features a shaded trail and outdoor art exhibits. The UFCU Pavilion serves as the center of the urban commons and will serve as an event and performance venue. It is named in honor of the $5 million donation the University Federal Credit Union presented to ACC for student scholarships in 2022.
