Corq helps college and university students discover and locate engaging co-curricular opportunities on and around their campus.

The UC North Building will remain open 24 hours from April 30th-May 7th. On May 8th the building will close at 1am. All reservable rooms will be available for student study space.
The HUC Building will keep regular hours, but rooms will be open for study space.
In addition to study space, the UC supports UTSA students as they prepare for final exams through offering free massage chairs and snacks. Taco Cabana and the UC Starbucks will be open each day until 2am on April 30th – May 7th.
Please help us spread the word to UTSA students!
The UTSA community can contact Counseling Services at 210-458-4140 for support both during and after office hours. UTSA Counseling Services has offered after-hours on-call services since 2003, utilizing existing staff members. On-call services were previously accessed through UTSA Police Dispatch and so were limited to client crisis/emergency or police consultation.
Going forward, UTSA Counseling Services has contracted with ProtoCall, a leading provider of third-party telephone behavioral services, to provide after office hour counseling services. By contracting with ProtoCall, the entire UTSA Community will have immediate access to a qualified mental health professional 24/7. Protocall professionals are experienced with college student mental health and will have access to UTSA and San Antonio-specific information and resources. ProtoCall will alert UTSA Counseling Services of over-night calls so that staff members can provide timely follow-up.
The UTSA University Career Center is pleased to announce our new Career Fair Mobile App which was rolled out on February 11th for the STEM and All-Majors Career Fair. This easy to download and use app provides an extensive amount of information which makes preparing for, navigating and working the career fair much easier for students.
The app, available free at both the Apple and Google app store, provides the following information on each Career Fair:
With 927 active users the app was highly successful and extensively used by students throughout both the STEM and All-Majors Career Fairs. There were 12,530 total screen views of the company listing, over 32,000 total screen views and over 24,000 individual sessions.
The University Career Center is committed to using technology and other resources to help UTSA students better prepare themselves in their career search and present themselves to employers in a highly professional manner. To download the app, go to your app store and do a search for “UTSA Career Fair”.
The UTSA Office of Emergency Management and UTSA Police Department – Crime Prevention Unit are offering many courses of interest this semester: learn about personal security and safety awareness, become a Floor Captain, interface with the National Weather Service, and learn how to help others in times of crisis, just to name a few.
Additionally, you may have noticed some changes and additions to the HR Training and Development course catalog regarding Emergency Management and Police Department sponsored trainings. In late fall, a new training category was developed for the course catalog entitled Emergency Preparedness (EP). In the past, all emergency management and Police sponsored trainings were coded under Safety (SA) or Staff Development (SD). Under the new catalog, all emergency management and PD courses will now be recorded as Emergency Preparedness (EP), and all past student history dating back to the inception of these courses have been re-coded with the EP prefix.
To register, visit MyTraining to confirm your seat and ensure you receive credit for the course.
We look forward to seeing each of you. Remember, preparedness is EVERYONE’s responsibility!
