UTSA Alumni Association
Since 1977, the UTSA Alumni Association has promoted UTSA and more than 108,000 alumni by supporting academic, athletic, and alumni events and activities. The Association builds pride and tradition among the University’s students and alumni, as well as the San Antonio community, and serves to advocate on behalf of alumni and the University.
The UTSA Alumni Association is an incorporated, 501(c)(3) organization in the State of Texas. As a dues-paying membership organization, it is governed by an elected board of directors. Located on the UTSA's Main Campus in the Katz Alumni Center, the daily operations of the Alumni Association and the Office of Alumni Programs share space, staff and resources.
Alumni and friends can join as annual members or life members. At the time of graduation, the Association gives new graduates a complimentary first year of membership and asks the new graduates to make their first gift by signing over their UTSA property deposit to the Association. Members have access to a wide variety of exclusive discounts and benefits including but not limited to: UTSA football loyalty points, use of the UTSA Library, discounted UTSA Recreation Center membership, and hotel, restaurant, and insurance partnership discounts.
In addition, the Alumni Association fosters life-long learning for alumni by giving them access to the University Career Center, the Center for Professional Excellence, and travel opportunities. Members of the Association also receive access to discounts for extended education courses at UTSA, as well as GMAT, LSAT, and GRE preparation workshops.
Alumni can join the Association, volunteer for a variety of activities, and register for events on the Association's website. The website also has alumni-exclusive gear available for purchase, such as the UTSA Ring, diploma frames, and Pave the Paseo bricks.
The Alumni Association also serves its future alumni by providing scholarships to outstanding UTSA students. The Alumni Association Endowment Fund has surpassed $1 million, which allows the Association to award more scholarships. Since the scholarship fund was established in 1982, the Association has awarded more than $1 million in scholarships.
Alumni-sponsored activities include:
- Alumni Association Gala (Summer)
- Diploma Dash® 5K Run/City Championship Race (Spring)
- Golf Scramble (early Summer)
- Roadrunner Station Home Football Game Tailgates (Fall)
- The UTSA Ring
- Alumnus of the Year and Distinguished Service Award recognition

As UTSA grows, it needs the support of its alumni and friends more than ever. The Alumni Association continues to build a thriving community of alumni, and it encourages Roadrunners to feel pride in their alma mater and play an active role in the University's vibrant alumni base.
