Latest information on vaccines and campus operations Roadrunner Roadmap


Living on campus is an important part of the Roadrunner experience for our students. On-campus housing has remained open for students throughout the semester, and we are looking forward to welcoming more students to our residence halls as the year progresses.


Residence halls accepting applications for fall 2021

This fall, on-campus housing will remain open for students who choose to live on campus, and both UTSA Housing and Campus Living Villages are accepting applications from prospective residents.

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 are trained on public health measures

Housing & Residence Life train all staff, including resident assistants, on appropriate health and safety measures. Student residents are trained on how to live safely away from home.

Move-in is contactless

Housing & Residence Life uses procedures for contactless move-in to promote the health and safety of student residents and their families.

Face coverings are 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.

Leasing obligations for Campus Living Villages may differ

University Oaks is 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, this property is listed in the overall housing program at UTSA. However, we have underscored that University Oaks is separate from the properties that UTSA owns and manages. Students who lease in University Oaks are contracting with CLV, a private company, separate from UTSA, and are subject to the terms and obligations of its contract.
