Alvarez Hall

Students are required to bring their own bedding and towels, as well as other standard living items. There is not a lot of room, so we encourage you to pack only the essentials so you will have plenty of space for everyone's belongings. The rooms at UTSA are built to accommodate the individual. Standard room set up consist of two separate sleeping spaces connected by a shared bath. In other words, each camper will enjoy their own private sleeping space. Campers tend to say that the dorm rooms are on the cold side (keeping the AC up keeps the humidity down!), so you may want to make sure you bring a blanket.

Males and females are separated by floor, though it may occasionally be necessary at our larger camps to have mixed gender floors. In these rare cases, males & females will be at opposite ends of the same floor. Under no circumstance will members of the opposite sex be roomed together.


If you know someone else who is coming to camp, you may wish to request a roommate. Campers may request one roommate only. You will specify your roommate request on your registration form. We will do our best to room you with your preferred roommate(s), however, it is not guaranteed. If you submit a request for a particular roommate and the other party does not, you will not be paired with your requested roommate. 

If you do not have a roommate to request, don’t worry, most students don’t! Rooming assignments are done according to age as well as camp, hometown & other factors.

Details about requesting a roommate:

  • Both campers involved in the request must submit their own via registration form so that we see that each person wishes to room together. For example, if Sally and Mary want to room together, each of them has to submit a roommate request form with both names on it. 
  • Please type your preferred roommates name just as it appears on their camp application. Please avoid nicknames. If we don't know who they are, we can't match you up!
  • Males and Females can not request each other
  • All request forms (registration forms) must be submitted by June 5th, 2017
