  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

What Students Are Saying

3.73 Average Rating
utsa has a diverse student population, a wide range of student services (including an excellent gym facility, complete with cooking courses, personal trainers, and rock-climbing wall), and a rapidly growing academic program with professors from all over the country and abroad. utsa is a great place to be if you want to have an impact on the rest of the student population; there are many student organizations to join, but it is also easy to become a key member (or even the president) of any club in which you're interested. academics are stronger in some fields than others; students in sciences and mathematics will find that the university puts a lot of money and time into those programs, while liberal arts departments are often smaller (though the classics and philosophy professors are absolutely wonderful, as well).
Catherine from Helotes, TX
UTSA is incredibly diverse and multi-cultural. It encourages student participation on campus, as well as promoting different things to help students in their studies. It is a very student-friendly environment.
