About Roadrunner Days

Welcome to the Roadrunner Family!

Now and Forever, You are a Roadrunner!

Roadrunner Days is a series of FUN events designed to welcome new and returning Roadrunners to UTSA. Roadrunner Days kicks off with Residence Hall move-in and runs through the first week of classes.

Roadrunner Days activities will help you make new friends, learn about UTSA’s resources for your academic journey, find your way around campus and start making connections with student groups and organizations you might want to join. Among the activities are major, campus-wide events, some long-standing traditions, and exciting new opportunities that you just cannot afford to miss!
