(Jan. 14, 2014) -- The ID card carried by students, faculty and staff -- the UTSACard -- provides a range of benefits and services. The card can be used to take advantage of benefits across campus and in the community.
The UTSACard can be used at a variety of locations across the UTSA campuses and can earn students discounts when presented at local businesses such as movie theaters and nightclubs. Faculty and staff can use the UTSACard to take advantage of the Employee Discount Program. With a minimum discount of 10 percent, categories include restaurants, automotive, fashion, health and beauty, sports and entertainment, home and garden, and more.
The UTSACard serves as a free ticket for students to all UTSA home athletics events such as men's and women's basketball, tennis, baseball, softball and football.
The UTSACard grants students, faculty and staff free admission to the UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures in downtown San Antonio, where patrons can explore Texas culture and history through a variety of exhibits, events and programs.
In addition to these and many campus arts performances, the UTSACard also can be used by students to gain entry to the Recreation Center or check out games and related equipment in The Roost in the H-E-B University Center. Additionally, the UTSACard is required for students to receive treatment at Student Health Services or to borrow materials from the UTSA Libraries.
UTSACard holders can load Rowdy Dollars onto their UTSACard account to be used at venues across the campuses including dining services, bookstores, Fiscal Services, University Center Information Desk, vending machines, Recreation Center, computer labs, Libraries printing, Libraries book checkout and Student Health Services. Funds can be loaded using financial aid funds, cash, check or credit card through Fiscal Services, online through ASAP or at one of several kiosks located throughout campus.

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.
The University of Texas at San Antonio is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge through research and discovery, teaching and learning, community engagement and public service. As an institution of access and excellence, UTSA embraces multicultural traditions and serves as a center for intellectual and creative resources as well as a catalyst for socioeconomic development and the commercialization of intellectual property - for Texas, the nation and the world.
To be a premier public research university, providing access to educational excellence and preparing citizen leaders for the global environment.
