Reasons to Live on Campus

Academic Success

Students who live on campus are more likely to get better grades, stay in school and graduate. With reliable high-speed internet and easy access to library resources, group study sessions and academic support resources, it just makes sense.

Living on campus in your first year at UTSA makes it easier to make friends, get involved on campus, and feel a greater sense of belonging.

Timesaving Conveniences

Nearly everything you need is within walking distance—food, gym, library, classes, labs, study sessions, tutoring, academic advising and support, mental health and wellbeing services, and much more.

Peace of Mind

Our on-campus health clinic, police department and fire station are just minutes away.


Choosing on-campus housing has distinct financial benefits, too, versus living off campus.

  • Leases tied to the academic semester rather than the calendar year.
  • All utilities included, including high-speed internet and wifi.
  • Free laundry facilities.
  • Housing charges assessed directly to tuition to include with financial aid each semester.
Special Interest Housing Programs
