Live on Campus

Why live on campus? Studies show students who reside on campus report a higher degree of satisfaction with their college experience, have higher retention and graduation rates, and are more likely to achieve a higher grade point average.

The convenience of living on campus is invaluable. Students are within walking distance of the library, classroom buildings, the University Center, dining options, Health Services, and the Campus Recreation Center. They can get to early morning classes without fighting traffic, and participate in a late-night study group at the library or University Center without concern about the drive home. On-campus residents also have the added security of a dedicated University police force that patrols the campus 24 hours a day.

UTSA's housing options offer flexible leasing choices for students that are graduating, studying abroad, or those starting in January or May. Refer to each provider's contract for details as requirements may vary.
