Two new parking lots to provide hundreds of new spaces on UTSA Main Campus
(April 3, 2017) -- More growth means new construction at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) Main Campus. Crews have begun work on two new parking lots that will create 400 additional spaces for UTSA students, faculty, staff and guests.
The new Resident Lot 4 will be located at the corner of Tobin Ave. and Brenan Ave. across from the Roadrunner Café. It will create approximately 275 new resident spaces for students with Resident "H" permits. The Devine Ave. Lot will be built north of the Business Building between Devine Ave. and Cocke Dr. It will add about 125 new Reserved, Employee A and disabled spaces.
Additionally, UTSA will reallocate parking across campus. Resident spaces in Barshop Lot 1 and Barshop Lot 2 (formerly Resident Lot 4) will be assigned to commuters, providing approximately 100 additional spaces for students who drive to campus each day. Bauerle Rd. Lot 3 will become Employee B, bringing much-needed employee spaces to the north side of campus.

"As UTSA continues to grow and advance toward Tier One status, providing necessary resources is paramount to UTSA's Campus Services' mission," said Burt Reynolds, UTSA director of services for Campus Services. "The addition of new parking lots and reallocation of existing parking is designed to help alleviate some of the congestion seen over the last academic year, providing more parking options for students and employees."
These new lots come at a good time due to the beginning of construction on the new Science and Engineering Building in June. A portion of Bauerle Rd. Lot 1 will be inside construction fences, while portions of Ford Lot and Ximenes Lot will be closed during the summer and part of the fall semester to facilitate duct bank trenching to support the new building. In addition, a portion of Barshop Lot 2 will be closed to facilitate construction on a large scale testing facility.
Reynolds said the new parking lot construction projects will cost about $3 million and is funded through parking strategic reserves. Both construction sites will be closed off by fencing and signage will be posted in and around the locations to assist with rerouting pedestrian traffic. The lots are expected to be open for the first day of fall 2017 classes. Campus Services will provide updates on the parking improvements throughout construction on Twitter and Facebook.
UTSA is ranked among the top 400 universities in the world and among the top 100 in the nation, according to Times Higher Education.
