Dear Business Affairs Familia,

Happy New Year! I hope you each enjoyed a meaningful winter break with your families and had time to relax and recharge for the year ahead.

Next week, I hope you will join us for the Let’s Chat! Town Hall coming up on Thursday, January 12. This virtual event will be an opportunity to hear more about the UTSA Strategic Plan Refresh and how our work in Business Affairs connects to larger institutional destinations.

Many other exciting and important events will be held throughout January, including the grand opening of San Pedro I, the annual MLK March, and the return of our Roadrunners to campus for the spring semester. I hope to see you at many of these events!

Spring 2023

Spring 2023 BA Connect Activities

Join us this spring for an exciting line-up of events and activities through our Business Affairs Connect program! We’ll kick things off this month with Let’s Chat, followed by a variety of virtual and in-person activities through the semester. Learn more – and we hope to see you there!

Parking Permits

Parking Permits and UTSACards

The start of the spring semester is around the corner! Remember, if you plan to bring a vehicle to campus this semester, you’ll need a valid UTSA parking permit. If you’re a remote or hybrid employee, consider a telecommuter parking pass. Alternately, learn more about hourly parking options. If you’re driving to the Downtown or Southwest Campus, review your parking options on our color-coded parking maps. This time of year is also a great time to make sure you have your UTSACard. Need a replacement? Stop by Campus Services.

Vaccines and Boosters

COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics (Including Boosters!)

Recovery Operations is hosting an on-campus COVID-19 vaccine clinic from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 12 in the Student Union Denman Ballroom (SU 2.01.28). Novavax vaccines as well as bivalent Pfizer boosters will be available. All are welcome to attend, and no appointment is necessary. Vaccine availability is first come, first served and while supplies last.

All UTSA employees, faculty and staff are invited to march in the UTSA delegation as a unified community to honor the memory and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the 36th annual citywide march.
