(July 1, 2011)--The UTSA Office of Facilities Planning and Development has announced name changes and associated building number changes and abbreviations for several facilities on the Main Campus. The names were approved by the UT System Board of Regents.

  • The new name for the laboratory complex on the west side of the Main Campus is the Science Research Laboratories.
  • University Center I and II and University Center III have been combined into one building, building number 0530, University Center (UC).
  • The North Parking Garage is now the Tobin Avenue Garage, building number 0523 (TAG).
  • The South Parking Garage and Thermal Energy Plant is now Bosque Street Garage, building number 0524 (BSG). (Bosque is pronounced "Boss-key." Bosque is the name of a river and county in Texas.)

Additionally, the following new buildings will be added to the inventory upon completion and acceptance by UTSA:

  • The East Parking Garage now is named the Bauerle Road Garage, building number 0525 (BRG).
  • The North Paseo Building, building number 0527 (NPB)

How are places and buildings named at UT System institutions?

The UT System Board of Regents approves naming at UT System institutions.

  • Buildings can be named in honor of individuals who have made major gifts to the universities.
  • Excepting paseos, walks and paths are to be named after Texas flora.
  • Excepting existing roads and streets, new roads and streets are to be named after Texas places such as cities, counties and natural areas.
  • Names cannot duplicate the name of existing city roads or streets in order to reduce confusion and facilitate use of Internet mapping programs.
  • Texas place names cannot be used when the place was named for a person, living or deceased.
  • Garages and parking lots will be named based upon the name of the road or street from which they are accessed.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

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.
