The UTSA area is the area directly surrounding the UTSA campus in Far Northwest San Antonio, just north of the Medical Center. This area encompasses the intersection of IH-10 and Loop 1604 on both sides of both highways and includes the neighborhoods of La Cantera, Deerfield, and Tanglewood among others. Houses in the UTSA area range from small homes on typical residential lots to large, luxurious homes on wooded acreage lots. Because of its proximity to both UTSA and the Medical Center, as well as large employers like Valero, USAA, and KCI, there are an abundance of apartments in the UTSA area. Like single family homes, apartments around UTSA also vary greatly in terms of pricing, size, and amenities, because the area is popular among students, families, and professionals alike.

The UTSA and adjoining Medical Center areas make up one of San Antonio’s population centers. While IH-10 and Loop 1604 are relatively close to most UTSA apartments and Medical Center apartments, getting to the highways on the area’s congested streets can be time consuming.

Another obvious choice for entertainment is Six Flags Fiesta Texas, a theme park and waterpark located on the northwest corner of the IH-10/Loop 1604 intersection.

Family fun on weekends might include a movie at one of two nearby theaters, jumping fun at the Altitude Trampoline Park, or exploring O.P Schnabel Park, a 202-acre city park offering nature trails, picnic areas, athletic fields, and playscapes. Options for relaxing with friends over dinner or a drink include Picks Bar, Quarry Hofbrau at the Rim, or Stone Werks Big Rock Grille at the Rim.
