Health & Safety Protocols

We are committed to your health and well-being.

UTSA is committed to fostering a safe learning, working and living environment for our Roadrunner community. As part of our shared responsibility to do our part, the university’s Recovery Operations Team coordinates the universities’ operations to maintain the safety and well-being of students, faculty, staff and visitors. The Recovery Operations objectives are to establish long-term campus operations protocols while maintaining flexibility to respond to changing conditions and guidance.

The Recovery Operations Team continually assesses local risk levels. Under guidance from resources including the CDC, State of Texas, UT System and San Antonio Metro Health, the team makes recommendations for adjustments to campus operations, protocols and procedures as needed. UTSA Housing and Residence Life leadership are active members of the Recovery Operations Team.

Operations and policies for 2024-2025

UTSA-managed housing facilities will operate normally for the 2024-2025 academic year. We will continue to follow public health and safety directives issued by UTSA and make policy adjustments or implement additional measures as necessary. Any updates to housing policies will be posted to this webpage.

Do your part

We have a shared responsibility to take steps to minimize the spread of infectious diseases and infections on our campus. COVID-19 and Mpox are recent examples, but this applies to the spread of many public health risks. This means adhering to national, state, and local health guidelines and requirements, as well as those measures deemed safe and appropriate for UTSA. Every member of our Roadrunner community – including you – must do their part.

Visit the Recovery Operations website for information regarding campus operations and guidelines.
