(Jan. 19, 2011)--Construction will begin in March on the 1,200-space East Parking Garage on the UTSA Main Campus. The new facility will be built on a portion of parking lot 4 near the Main Building with construction continuing through summer 2012.
Currently, there are approximately 600 parking spaces in lot 4. Upon completion of the project, there will be approximately 225 surface spaces in lot 4, in addition to the 1,200 parking spaces in the garage. Permits to park in the new garage will be available to students, faculty and staff starting in fall 2012. On completion of the new garage, students will be able to park near the Main Building during the day with the appropriate permit.
"Once the construction fence is placed, we encourage everyone to be mindful that arriving early and knowing alternate routes and parking options are essential," said Shelley Deats, UTSA assistant director of parking services. "We thank you for your patience and support during this project."

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.
Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.
Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
All campuses will be closed for the Labor Day holiday.
