Campus Living

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

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).
