UTSA Today

The UTSA Honors College is taking the first concrete step toward becoming a residential college—a comprehensive on-campus living-learning community that will provide its students with the small, supportive, private college experience that many top-reviewed honors colleges in the nation offer. 

Starting in fall 2020, all first-year freshmen entering the university as Honors College students will be required (with some exceptions) to live on campus for their first academic year. These students will be part of the Honors Residential Community, where they will live and study with other honors students in a supportive, close-knit community designed to help them succeed. 

“UTSA is committed to providing our students with an exceptional educational experience—both in and out of the classroom,” said Kimberly Andrews Espy, UTSA provost and senior vice president for academic affairs. “Increasing our living-learning communities is one of the many steps we are taking to help new students more quickly find their sense of belonging at UTSA and strengthen the connection they make to their academic experience.”
