(Sept. 11, 2017) -- If you haven’t visited the University Center yet, you’re missing out. The “UC” is a comfy Main Campus hangout where you can study, buy books or UTSA spirit gear, and grab something to eat.
The beanbag chairs in the lobby are good for studying…or naps.
You’ll see students reading, catching up with friends or taking a quick snooze on the big beanbag chairs in the UC window lounge outside of the Rowdy Campus Store.
The Information Center can help you navigate UTSA.
Stop by and enjoy some free lemonade or tea while you pass through. If you get lost and need directions or just have a question about campus, ask a student at the first floor info desk (near the bookstore) for help. They remember what it was like to be new and they’re super friendly. They’ll be happy to help you.
You can kick back and take a break at The Roost.
Study breaks are encouraged at The Roost Game Room, located on the second floor of the H-E-B University Center, just above Frost Bank. There, ’Runners play video games, pool, chess and ping pong. Super competitive?!? The Roost hosts tournaments regularly.
You can catch a free movie.
Want to watch a movie on the big screen but don’t want to leave campus or pay for it? Check out the UCinema each Friday and Saturday night during the fall and spring semesters. Recent movies are shown on the second floor of the UC in the Retama Auditorium – and sometimes on the UC Lawn. It’s one of the many free events the UC hosts for students throughout the year.
The UC is home to the bookstore and plenty of other places to shop and dine.
The UC houses the Campus Technology Store, where you can buy software and equipment, the Roadrunner Express where you can buy testing supplies, VIA bus passes and tickets to local attractions, and the Rowdy Campus Store where you can buy books and #UTSA swag.
You can also eat at the UC Food Court, Subway, Chili’s Too or grab a snack at Rowdy Mart. Need coffee? One of the two Starbucks on Main Campus is in the UC near the food court.
