(Sept. 17, 2018) -- The Presidential Initiative on the Downtown Campus aims to provide an autonomous living and learning experience to students so they can complete their degrees without ever having to leave San Antonio’s urban core. To support this important initiative, the Student Union is expanding to the Downtown Campus.
Starting this month, the Student Union is occupying spaces currently known as the UTSA Conference Center. These rooms include the Buena Vista Assembly Room (BVB 1.338), the Alamo Boardroom (DB 1.122), the La Villita Room (DB 1.116), the El Paseo Room (DB 1.120), the Riverwalk Room (DB 1.124) and the El Mercado Room (DB 1.208).
Transitioning the management of the space will provide students with additional features at the Downtown Campus that are available at the Main Campus. Registered student organizations and university departments may begin reserving these rooms through the Student Union’s Events Management & Conference Services (EMCS) website. Once reserved, Student Union personnel will facilitate room set-up and audiovisual needs at a fee structure similar to the one in place at the Main Campus.
EMCS also will manage reservations for outdoor event locations on the Downtown Campus, such as Bill Miller Plaza, and for academic classrooms requested for non-academic meetings and events. The set-up and audiovisual services for those spaces will continue to be supported by Facilities and OIT Learning Technologies.
Plans to expand the Student Union’s Student Staff Development Program are simultaneously underway. The Student Union has begun hiring and training qualified students to assist with event and facility management on the Downtown Campus. Interested UTSA students can apply online via Handshake.
UTSA Extended Education will continue to manage reservations for the Buena Vista Street Building Theater (BVB 1.326) and adjacent Aula Canaria (BVB 1.328).
