Living on campus is an important part of the Roadrunner experience for our students. On-campus housing has remained open for students throughout the summer, and we are looking forward to welcoming more students to our residence halls this fall.
Residents are living as “family units”
Residents are grouped into “family units." A family unit is two or more students who share a bathroom or common living area. Residents within family units are responsible for maintaining personal hygiene and utilizing CDC-recommended cleaning standards throughout their unit, including their bathroom.
Family Units remain together during daily activities
Family units remain together while dining, studying and socializing, limiting close interactions with outside groups. No guests (UTSA or non-UTSA) are allowed in on-campus housing while social distancing measures remain in effect.
Common areas are cleaned frequently
Public areas such as community kitchens and common area restrooms have occupancy limits and are cleaned at least twice per day. They also are stocked with hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes for the benefit of people using those spaces. Residents are responsible for cleaning shared kitchenettes and bathrooms.
Common spaces such as multipurpose rooms and seminars rooms may be limited or closed to support social distancing. Pools and sports courts are closed.
Staff and residents will be trained on public health measures
Housing & Residence Life developed training for all staff, including resident assistants, on appropriate health and safety measures. Student residents were trained on how to live safely away from home.
Move-in was contactless
Housing & Residence Life implemented procedures for contactless move-in to promote the health and safety of student residents and their families.
Face coverings will be required in common areas
Masks are not required in living spaces for members of a family unit, but are required in common areas
Arrangements are in place for students who need to self-isolate or quarantine
UTSA has a protocol in place for students who may need to self-isolate or quarantine due to a diagnosis or exposure to COVID-19. Meals will be provided in-room for those who are in isolation/quarantine.
Residence halls will remain open when instruction moves to remote learning mode only after Thanksgiving.
Leasing obligations for Campus Living Villages may differ
University Oaks and Chisolm Hall are owned and operated by Campus Living Villages (CLV), a private third-party company that operates under a ground lease with UTSA. As part of our contractual obligation with CLV, those properties are listed in the overall housing program at UTSA. However, we have underscored that University Oaks and Chisolm Hall are separate from the properties that UTSA owns and manages. Students who lease in University Oaks and Chisolm Hall are contracting with CLV, a private company, separate from UTSA, and are subject to the terms and obligations of its contract.
