Our Downtown campus is located at IH10 and IH 35, in the heart of downtown San Antonio. Our Hemisphere campus is also located in the heart of downtown and is just minutes away from our academic campus downtown.
Helpful Information - The University of Texas at San Antonio is a diverse, growing, exciting campus and we are excited to welcome you as a potential Roadrunner! We easily accept any eligible Plan A but are quite restricted on Plan B. Registration is done by class standing so the more hours you have, the earlier you register! Living on campus is a great way to be close to class, and get to know fellow Roadrunners! If living off campus is more your style, there are many options within walking distance of campus.

Exchange with Canada - Health Insurance
For Plan A U.S. students, aid is awarded by and disbursed from your host campus. Students apply for federally funded financial aid by using the FAFSA code of their host campus. Host campuses award aid to incoming Plan A students on a first-come, first-served basis as long as funds are available. Ask your home campus NSE coordinator if your campus awards aid to their own outgoing students. If so, do not apply for aid from your host campus.
For eligible Plan A applicants U.S. federal financial aid may be available in the following programs:
For Plan B students, aid is awarded by and disbursed from your home campus.
Regardless of Plan A or Plan B, students exchanging to or from Canada, apply for financial aid at their home campus.
The majority of former NSE students have chosen to live off campus since there are shuttles that run from the apartments to campus.
