(Aug. 26, 2013) -- The UTSA community and friends are invited to celebrate the opening of San Saba Hall, the newest residence hall on campus, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house at 3 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 27.

UTSA President Ricardo Romo will join Student Government Association President Zack Dunn in dedicating the building on behalf of the university faculty, staff and students. Tours of the building will immediately follow the ceremony.

Before the ceremony, guests can enjoy refreshments on the San Saba Hall lawn.  Guests are encouraged to wear UTSA apparel as we celebrate the collaborative effort that brought this project to completion.

San Saba Hall houses 618 students in a suite-style layout that includes single bedrooms with a shared bath. The facility features an open lobby, administrative offices, meeting spaces and live-in professional staff. Residents have access to a conference room, computer lab, floor study lounges, laundry facilities and a community kitchen.

The new facility is a true living and learning community with an academic focus that houses communities related to the Honors College, Top Scholars, Terry Scholars, Facilitated Acceptance to Medical Education (F.A.M.E.), Engineering and a Leadership and Service lifestyle.

With the opening of San Saba Hall, 4,300 students live on campus including the privately operated housing partners.
