Around Campus

Where can I get my ID Card?

The UTSA ID Card office is located at MS 1.01.52.  At this present time the university is developing a process to allow students to request a UTSACard remotely, including uploading their own ID photo.

Where is the Bookstore?

It is located in the Student Union first floor of Main Campus, and hours of operation have yet to be determined. The Bookstore expects students will be able to purchase course materials and supplies in the campus stores and/or through the Bookstore website. Online purchasers will have the option to pick up their order at the store or have the order shipped.

Where can I print?

You can print out your documents in the BB Computer Lab. While you are there, ask about PrintSpot services. This allows you to send your print outs to printers located around campus. It’s a cool feature so you don’t always have to go to a computer lab to print something.
