(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.

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.
