Life in San Antonio

The UTSA Department of Architecture has the strategic advantage of being located in downtown San Antonio among many of the cultural treasures of the American Southwest. These include: the 18th century Spanish colonial missions and cathedral, the 19th and early 20th century urban fabric of the downtown, historic neighborhoods such as Southtown, King William, Monte Vista, and others, with important 19th, 20th, and 21st century architecture including numerous works of adaptive reuse architecture, the San Antonio Museum of Art, the nearby McNay Museum, the Bluestar Gallery, among other museums and art galleries Furthermore, the Architecture Center at the AIA San Antonio is close by and offers programs, a lecture series, and professional networking opportunities that enhance the educational experience at the UTSA Dept. of Architecture. A public bike system offers alternatives to the automobile.

As the 7th largest city in the United States, downtown San Antonio and nearby  areas of the city offer a wide range of culinary experiences including Chinese, Cajun, Indian, Middle Eastern, Peruvian, Thai, Vegetarian, as well as regional BBQ, Mexican, and  Tex-Mex cuisine. The downtown also abounds with coffee houses with coffee, tea, fresh baked goods, including a Latin American coffee house in the downtown. Across the street from the Dept. of Architecture is a Café with a daily fresh salad and soup bar, a grill, a daily specialty dish, and a “Starbucks” and “Subway.” Inside the Dept. of Architecture building, a convenient smaller café offers fresh baked goods, cold sandwiches, fruit drinks, and fresh coffee. The downtown campus also offers a fitness center, basketball court, and a lounge with to relax and socialize.

Students and faculty live in a variety of neighborhoods including the downtown, southside, northside, east side, and west side, or further afield in suburbs that surround the city. Students and faculty arrive at school on bikes, public buses, carpool, as well as individual cars. On weekends students and faculty enjoy walking and biking on the downtown River Walk, one of the great urban experiences in the United States, museums, UTSA men’s and women’s sports including football games in the downtown Alamo Dome, used bookstores and antique stores, films, concerts, live music, NBA Spurs basketball, as well as annual city-wide events in the downtown such “Fiesta,” Holiday Lights on the Riverwalk, and annual parades.
