Move In


Date: Friday, August 17

Time: 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Location: Laurel Village, Chaparral Village, and Alvarez Hall

Details:

The UTSA community welcomes our residents to their on-campus home! Laurel Village, Chaparral Village, and Alvarez Hall are home for 2,300 students during the academic year, and our Move-In event kicks off Roadrunner Days. The entire campus participates by volunteering their time and energy to assist residents during the move-in process, which results in a friendly, stress-free environment!

Just to prove how serious we are about keeping your move-in experience stress-free, we created a plan that requires you to remember one thing: BK5 – everyone starts at BK5, and from there, we will gently guide you to your next stop.  You may not skip this step – it's where you'll receive your temporary unloading permit (which grants you entrance into the best unloading lots), directions to overnight parking, and so much more!  All you have to do is visit this Google Maps link for directions to BK5.

Please be on the lookout for emails from studenthousing@utsa.edu, and check for updates at both the Roadrunner Days website and the UTSA Housing website as move-in day approaches.

When you're done moving in, be sure to head over to the many events being held in your honor by visiting the Roadrunner Days website for dates, times and locations.
