Smoking is permitted outside any building as long as it is 20 feet or more from the entryway, doorway or common path of travel with one exception. At the Recreation and Wellness Center, the permissible smoking distance is 100 feet from any outside entrance or doorway. Violations will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis in accordance with established disciplinary policies of the University."

The UTSA Staff Council is an advisory body through which UTSA staff members convey information and make recommendations to President Ricardo Romo regarding staff-related interests and concerns.

The council is charged by the UTSA president and the University of Texas System Board of Regents with the goal of continually improving university operations and the well-being of UTSA staff.
