Housing and Residence Life (HRL)

The department of Housing and Residence Life (HRL) at UTSA has three residential communities (Alvarez Hall, Chaparral Village, and Laurel Village) for students to choose from.

Alvarez Hall offers private rooms with two students sharing a bathroom and has Special Interest Housing, which includes an Honors College floor, an Engineering floor, and a Leadership and Service floor. Chaparral Village and Laurel Village offer apartment-style units with private bedrooms in either a two bedroom one bath suite or four bedroom two bath suite.


Housing Tours

The last date for summer housing tours is scheduled for July 21st in order to set up and make ready all spaces for fall 2017.

Fall walk-in tours will begin on August 21st with visitor parking available in front of Alvarez Hall.

UTSA Housing will not have a model to show for fall due to all spaces being utilized to house UTSA students.

While, we cannot show a room, we can offer a general informational tour to anyone interested.
