University of Texas - San Antonio - Guadalupe Hall

Broaddus & Associates served as project manager for Guadalupe Hall, UTSA’s newest residence hall for freshmen. The integrated living and learning community includes group study areas in multiple locations and multipurpose space to give students more opportunities to engage faculty, staff and fellow students. The 372-bed residence hall features affordable double-occupancy rooms, study lounges, an academic resource center, community lounges, community kitchens, laundry rooms, group study areas, a multi-purpose and seminar room, and a coffee shop.

The project is part of UTSA’s Campus Master Plan, which will guide the campus development over the next decade to meet the needs of a growing population. As part of the UT System’s Capital Improvement Program, the UT System Board of Regents authorized the projected cost of $43.6M for the project, of which $38.6M came from the Revenue Financing System. The remaining funds came from UTSA reserves.

“This new living and learning community will dramatically impact the student campus experience, further supporting student success, especially among our freshman and first-generation student populations.” said Veronica Mendez, UTSA’s senior vice president for Business Affairs and chief financial officer. Students began occupancy of the 101,351-SF structure for the fall 2021 semester, raising the number of UTSA students living on campus to 4,508.
