(July 24, 2013) -- The UTSA Office of Student Life announces the appointment of Daniel Gockley as director of housing and residence life, effective July 22.

"We are very excited about having Dan join us at UTSA in this critical role," said Kevin Price, associate vice president for student life and dean of students. "Dan is an outstanding housing professional. I'm confident he will do an excellent job for us."

Gockley's appointment comes after a yearlong, nationwide search. He has 15 years of professional experience in housing and residence life. He comes to UTSA from Fairmont State University in Fairmont, W.Va., where he served as the director of housing and campus life for seven years.

"It's such an exciting time to join UTSA, and I am thrilled to become a Roadrunner," said Gockley. "It was important to me to join an institution committed to students and student success, and it's clear that there are exciting things happening at UTSA. The drive to achieve Tier One status is clearly evident."

UTSA's newest on-campus residence hall, San Saba Hall, will open this fall. It will feature state-of-the-art amenities and include an open lobby, study and TV lounges on each floor, meeting spaces, a community kitchen and free laundry facilities. It is expected to house 618 residents, bringing the total number of on-campus residents at UTSA to nearly 4,300.

"San Saba Hall is an exciting project that is an absolutely tremendous addition to our students' residential options," said Gockley. "I am excited to see what new traditions and experiences our students will create there.

Gockley earned Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees from the University of Kentucky. While there, he worked as a resident assistant. Additionally, he is the president-elect of the Mid-Atlantic Association of College and University Housing Officers.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
