(Aug. 14, 2014) -- The first group of UTSA students living on campus will arrive Thursday, Aug. 14 at Chisholm Hall and University Oaks at the Main Campus. The facilities are owned and operated by Campus Living Villages, a privately owned company that contracts with UTSA.
Including 500 Chisholm residents and 1,400 University Oaks residents, more than 4,300 students live in campus residences. Approximately 2,400 students live in UTSA-owned properties San Saba Hall, Laurel Village and Chaparral Village.
Chisholm Hall offers students a close-knit community with traditional residence hall facilities. Students have the choice of individual and double-occupancy rooms with an attached private bathroom, plus an indoor swimming pool, planned programs and complete community kitchens for residents to use.

After Chisholm and University Oaks residents settle in, they can enjoy the official kick-off of the new academic year with UTSA Roadrunner Days, running Aug. 22-29 at the Main and Downtown campuses.
