Joint Sponsorship Overview

The joint sponsorship applies to events, camps, conferences, meetings or programs that take place at the Downtown Campus. These events occur only after UTSA extends an invitation and is hosted by a UTSA internal host and an external host.


A dedicated staff member will provide event planning and ensure your event complies with UT System Board of Regents (BOR) rules. In addition to rental fees, the Invited/External Host understands it will be financially responsible for all expenses related to this event. Some expenses include, but are not limited to, A/V rental and setup, room setup and housekeeping, event parking, event security, catering, and administration fees.


External Organization

  • Organizations unaffiliated with UTSA

  • Groups that are not registered student, faculty, or staff organizations, including outside organizations
