Honors Residential College


This initiative will create a new residence hall for the university’s top students that brings UTSA’s Honors College to new levels of national prominence. Initiative working group members will work with partnering entities to determine the best location, size and scope of the hall, its amenities and facilities, and the manner in which it “makes place” for the Honors College. In so doing, it will coextensively make recommendations about campus residency requirements, College enrollment goals, and resource needs for delivering the curricular needs predicted by the number of residents.
