What’s not to love about sleeping in and still having enough time to hit up Starbucks on the way to class? UTSA offers several distinct housing options that are available in either a residence hall or apartment style. Each housing option comes with plenty of space for storage, studying, sleeping and socializing.
There are also many benefits to living on campus including friendships, simplicity, academic success and convenience, to name a few. Other benefits include 24-hour laundry centers, furnished living spaces, flexible leases, common areas with neighborhood centers and 24-hour emergency maintenance.
Greater Academic Success
Both national and institutional studies show that students who live on campus achieve higher academic success. First-year students living on-campus experience up to .3 grade points higher on their GPAs and First-Gen students who live on-campus (rather than off-campus or at home) are more likely to stay in school, an 11% improved retention rate. Students reap the benefits of having 24/7 support from trained, live-in student and professional staff who share their academic goals. Students have access to Academic Peer Coaches who live in their communities and learning opportunities through programs delivered by our Residence Assistants (RA).
Provided at no additional cost and aimed at helping students stay focused on academic success and personal growth, UTSA Housing residencies provide conveniences such as fully furnished living spaces, 24-hour laundry centers, common areas, neighborhood centers, and simple billing with utilities included.
Peace of Mind
The safety and health of our students are a priority. Our on-campus Health Clinic has doctors, certified physician assistants, registered and licensed nurses and accepts many major medical insurance plans. The on-campus UTSA Police Department is available 24/7 and offers many safety resources, and San Antonio Fire Station 34 is located directly adjacent to Main Campus on Babcock Road.
Special Interest Housing
Students who share a common interest and seek academic and personal development can opt for a Special Interest Housing (SIH) program. Check each housing community for SIH availability.
