A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:

UTSA is public University with 34,344 students, it is the largest university in San Antonio and the eighth largest in the state of Texas. UTSA's six campuses span over 778 acres of land, with its main campus being the largest campus area in the University of Texas System. UTSA offers a wide array of academic studies, with 70+ undergraduate programs, 65 master's and 25 doctoral degrees.

Which of the following features are present on campus and which are included within the institutional boundary?:
Present? Included?
Agricultural school No No
Medical school No No
Other professional school with labs or clinics (e.g. dental, nursing, pharmacy, public health, veterinary) No No
Museum Yes No
Satellite campus Yes Yes
Farm larger than 2 hectares or 5 acres No No
Agricultural experiment station larger than 2 hectares or 5 acres No No
Hospital No No

The rationale for excluding any features that are present from the institutional boundary:

The university runs a museum at the Hemisfare campus (Institute of Texan Culture, "ITC") where classes were held only in 2022. Because of a building issue, the School of Architecture was temporarily relocated to ITC and a minimal number of classes were held there. The Hemisfare campus is being assessed for its future use and business has been significantly reduced since 2021.The Institute of Texan Cultures is excluded from the institutional boundary.

The university purchased the Southwest school of art in June 2022. A cost benefit analysis is underway to assess the potential for energy and water retrofits. UTSA has excluded this campus because it was just recently purchased.

The Park West Campus serves as a 135-acre annex, housing soccer
and track & field athletics facilities. Its primary purpose is for athletic use and is open only seasonally. Therefore Park West Campus will be excluded from the institutional boundary.
