Abstract: A $ p$-adic rigid structure of the classifying spaces of certain finite groups $ \pi $, including alternating groups $ {A_n}$ and finite classical groups, is shown in terms of the maps into the $ p$-completed classifying spaces of compact Lie groups. The spaces $ (B\pi )_p^ \wedge $ have no nontrivial retracts. As an application, it is shown that $ (B{A_n})_p^ \wedge \simeq (B{\Sigma _n})_p^ \wedge $ if and only if $ n\not \equiv 0,1,\;\bmod \,p$. It is also shown that $ (BSL(n,{\mathbb{F}_q}))_p^ \wedge \simeq (BGL(n,{\mathbb{F}_q}))_p^ \wedge $ where $ q$ is a power of $ p$ if and only if $ (n,q - 1) = 1$.
