(July 30, 2014) -- UTSA faculty and staff members will start moving into the new North Paseo Building (NPB) on Tuesday, Sept. 2. The first and second floors of the five-level building on the Main Campus are dedicated largely to student classrooms and research labs that will be ready to use in the spring 2015 semester.

The NPB also will house administrative offices currently in off-campus leased properties, as well as consolidate Computer Science and various cybersecurity departments, institutes and centers.

Located south of the Tobin Avenue garage and adjacent to the UTSA Oval, the NPB features a wide corridor and seating areas to service first-floor classrooms. On the North Paseo side of the building, there will be landscaping and shaded outdoor seating. A glass wall will create a strong visual connection between outdoors and indoors with an inviting environment for informal gathering and group study.

At the building’s south end, a stairwell open to the fifth floor and topped with a skylight will allow light to pass from the fifth to ground floor. The open stairway will promote easy interaction between floors and improved physical fitness -- the open space will entice more use of the stairs and less of the elevator. A wall system with doors on each level would slide closed in the instance of a fire to contain smoke and fire.

The NPB in combination with the Plaza Norte Building will define Plaza Norte, an outdoor courtyard where the UTSA community can gather. Finally, a portal passing through the north end of the NPB ground floor will complete a path connecting San Saba Hall at the campus west side and the UTSA Oval on the east side.

According to Facilities Engineering and Project Management, NPB move-in will be complete by Friday, Nov. 21, before the Thanksgiving holiday. Some of the classrooms in the building will not be complete until the December holiday break.

Some Financial Affairs offices will not not move; those offices are Financial Services and University Bursar, Inventory, Surplus and Fiscal Services.

UTSA researcher is a star behind the cloud

A revolution in cloud computing is underway, and Ravi Sandhu believes it will be much bigger than the PC and Internet revolutions that have already changed the way we live. Sandhu, director of the UTSA Institute for Cyber Security, says UTSA is taking a leadership role in tackling three fundamental cloud technology problems: how to build and operate the cloud, how to use it profitably for diverse applications and how to keep it secure.

Sandhu, the Lutcher Brown Distinguished Chair in Cyber Security in the College of Sciences, and Ram Krishnan, assistant professor of electrical engineering in the UTSA College of Engineering, are funded by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to improve cloud security.
