We’re a tight-knit campus inside a big city. From intramural sports to run clubs, you can find ways to balance your life outside classrooms and clinics.
San Antonio’s cost of living is affordable, but you’ll still feel like you’re getting the best of city life when you go to school here. You can stay close to the Medical Center, where our campus resides, or find your best fit on the urban-to-rural spectrum of San Antonio’s neighborhoods.
We offer a wide variety of recognized organizations on campus. Most are professional and discipline-specific. Others are cultural, religious, social or special interest. Want to volunteer? We can help you find a group perfect for you and your professional plans.
