Family Weekend

UTSA invites Roadrunner families to attend Family Weekend Events happening Friday and Saturday, October 7 and 8.

Tour the Roadrunner Athletics Center of Excellence

We are working with Roadrunner Athletics to provide families with a memorable experience, a tour of the Roadrunner Athletics Center of Excellence. Gather the family to learn about the wonderful facility our athletes have as a resource for training, wellness, and studying. The tour will also include a chance to hear from one of our coaches and other athletic staff. No admission fee is required.

This event has reached our attendance limit. Click the link to email to let us know if you can no longer make it to the tour. 

Family Association Dinner

Take a stroll through campus to the H-E-B Student Union Ballroom for the Family Association for dinner on Friday evening. Enjoy chatting with your roadrunner, getting to know fellow roadrunner families, and taking in the sound of the live music. The dinner will be $10 per person and free for small children. Tickets are on sale now! Your student will also need to have a ticket purchased. 

Our Family Association Dinner has reached capacity. Feel free to call or email to let us know if you can no longer make it to dinner.
