The UTSA University Center is supporting UTSA students as they focus on preparing for final exams and finishing their fall semester strong. During UTSA Study Days and Final Exam Days, the University Center will transition into the “Study Center” for UTSA students. Most meeting rooms will be open and available to students searching for a place to study and prepare for their final exams. The UC also has you covered with the convenient food locations, Starbucks (which is open until midnight Monday-Thursday), and the Roadrunner Express which provides testing supplies including scantrons.
The UC also provides students with a way to take a moment to de-stress from all the exam preparation. During UC Study Breaks on Dec. 15-19th, free massage chairs and snacks will be available each day from 11:30am-1:30pm in the UC Window and Airport Lounges. We invite you to stop by UC, de-stress, and find a place to study. The UC will be open Dec 11th - 19th from 8am to midnight each day. Select rooms are reserved by UTSA Student Disability Services if students are registered with their office and seeking space to take exams. For more information on this specific need, contact the UTSA Student Disability Services at 210-458-4157.
For additional information on study spaces available, follow @UCPrograms or contact Event Management and Conference Services at 210-458-4155.
