Welcome to the UTSA Downtown Campus. photo of Jesse ZapataThe Downtown Campus opened at its current and permanent location in 1997 and contributes to UTSA’s mission to offer students access to opportunities for excellence in academics, research and outreach.

Located just a few blocks from beautiful downtown San Antonio, the campus offers select undergraduate, master's and doctoral programs as well as most services students receive at the Main Campus. The Downtown Campus is also home to a large array of community outreach programs and extended education offerings.

The campus’ location near the city center provides our students with access to internships, field placements and other opportunities with for-profit companies, non-profit organizations, schools and civic, political, educational and community agencies. Quite naturally, many of the programs and degrees offered at the UTSA Downtown Campus focus on urban issues, research and leadership.

I encourage you to explore what the Downtown Campus has to offer. I believe you will be impressed.

Jesse T. Zapata, Ph.D.
Senior Vice Provost for the UTSA Downtown Campus
