(March 10, 2010)--Construction on a third multi-level parking garage on the UTSA Main Campus is expected to begin in November and to be completed in July 2012. The East Garage will be on a portion of parking lot 4 north of the Main Building.
Existing parking spaces will remain behind the Main Building and along John Peace Boulevard. The parking facility will be capable of supporting up to 1,200 spaces with room for a customer service center, as well as a potential coffee kiosk within the facility.
Constructed to support the university's future needs, the garage will offer faculty, staff and student permit parking, as well as paid daily visitor and event parking. The $30-million project will be paid with parking-permit and short-term parking revenues.
Permit and hourly parking rates will increase in 2011-2012 to meet the debt-financing requirements of the project. The most popular student permit, Commuter, will cost $105 next year and the most common faculty/staff permit, "B," will cost $138.
UTSA Business Auxiliary Services will release a parking reallocation plan later this month for spaces that will be displaced during the construction project. Watch UTSA Today for upcoming details on the East Garage.
UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
