The Roost is a game room opened to all enrolled students at The University of Texas at San Antonio. We are located on the second floor of the HEB University Center across the center bridge or right above Frost Bank on the main campus. The Roost offers a variety of games such as pool, air hockey, foosball, ping pong and board games. The Roost also has six different gaming systems, Wii, XBOX 360, PlayStation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U with over 50 different games to choose from.  There are a variety of videos games for each system to choose from. A list of the video games for consoles can be found under the "Video games" tab. So what are you waiting for? Come and stop on by! All you need is a valid UTSA student I.D.


UC Programs hosts weekly tournaments in The Roost each week during the fall and spring semesters.  Space is limited so get to The Roost early on the day of the tournament. Tournaments vary each week and include video games, ping pong, billiards, chess, and more.  View the monthly calendar for The Roost tournament schedule, or visit RowdyLink.

Roost Etiquette

The Roost is a program offered through the University Center and is part of the University of Texas at San Antonio.  Therefore, we ask for students to use their best behavior at The Roost. The atmosphere in The Roost can be ecstatic and fun, yet we ask all students to remember that their behavior and actions represent the University.  Throughout the year, The Roost welcomes visitors from many places, including students under 18 touring the facility.  We therefore ask students to be at their best behavior and respectful to others.
