Welcome to the UTSA Family! As your student begins their journey to become a new Roadrunner, we are excited to provide you with resources, opportunities, and information to help make sure you have all you need to be an informed and engaged UTSA family member.

As a family member to a new, incoming student, we know it is important to equip yourself up with as much knowledge and insight as you can to ensure your student’s success. We offer our UTSA family members optional orientation experiences that parallel your students’ experience with a variety of important information and campus resources. In addition, we partner with UTSA’s Family Association who make sure you stay connected to campus activities, network with other UTSA family members and continue to support your student. We encourage you to take advantage of these amazing opportunities.
