Amazing things are being planned for the UTSA Downtown Campus, including a mixed-use facility with a variety of living options, dining, and other retail. In the meantime, there are several options available now for students wanting an urban-living experience convenient to the Downtown Campus. Below we list two options that have agreed to hold a block of rooms for UTSA students and a link to a more expansive directory of apartments with contact information.
Tobin Lofts is a fully-furnished, college student community located on the San Antonio College campus less than 10 minutes from the UTSA Downtown campus by car and about 25-30 minutes by VIA bus. Each student has a private room and is only responsible for their own personal lease. Amenities include a full-kitchen with granite countertops, high speed internet, a 24-hour fitness center, resort-style pool and a washer & dryer in every unit. There are a number of floorplans to choose from. 5, 10 and 12 month leases are available and rates start at only $585 a month.
Tobin Lofts houses students from different colleges in San Antonio and is currently holding a limited number of units specifically for UTSA students.
UTSA plans to provide transportation between Tobin Lofts and the Downtown Campus through a UTSA shuttle and/or a ride share partner such as Uber or Lyft.
For more information, please visit the Tobin Lofts website.
Directly adjacent to the Downtown Campus, the DoubleTree is offering a limited number of rooms to UTSA students at deeply discounted rates. Amenities include linen service, weekly maid service, a swimming pool, fitness room, complimentary parking pass for covered garage, coin laundry, mini fridge, hourly downtown shuttle, flat panel 50” TV, free cable with HBO/sports channels, onsite convenience store, free local calls, all utilities and WIFI included. The hotel is experiencing renovations this fall which may impact some services. (The self-service coin laundry is expected to be unavailable through mid-October, but during that time the hotel plans to shuttle students to a nearby laundromat on a weekly basis.)
Students wanting a double room should reserve their space at the same time as their chosen roommate. If you don't have a roommate, you may contact Cherilyn Patteson in the Office of Student Life by email and express your interest in receiving assistance in finding a roommate.
For more information about the facility, please visit the DoubleTree San Antonio Downtown website.
