Roadrunner for a Day Tour

Tour Details

The Roadrunner for a Day program provides elementary and middle school students with an opportunity to tour the UTSA Campus, talk to college students, and learn about the importance of higher education. The P-20 Institute Roadrunner for a Day program aims to inspire, engage, and assist the participating students in their pursuit of higher education goals.

Self-Guided Tours

If an elementary or a middle school is unable to reserve a Roadrunner for a Day, you may experience UTSA through a Self-Guided Tour of the UTSA 1604 Campus. Reservations are available for groups to complete a tour of campus on their own.

Self-guided tours may be scheduled during the week at 9:30 AM, 11:00 AM, and 2:00 PM.
One group per time slot is allowed.

Groups larger than 150 should split the group and stagger arrival times for self-guided tours.
Registration for self-guided tours are requested to ensure the safety of the students and campus.
