New North Paseo building to be completed by the spring semester

The wait is almost over.

The 5-story North Paseo building will be completed by next semester, Spring 2015. The 180,000 square-foot structure will soon house administrative offices, lecture halls, and laboratories.

Many of UTSA’s administrative offices — such as human resources, financial affairs and payroll services — currently reside in rental space at the University Heights Complex off Hausman Rd.

UTSA chief communication officer Joe Izbrand explained the North Paseo “will take nearly all the university functions that reside off-campus in leased space and bring them together on-campus — closer to students.”

Izbrand forecasted that shifting these administrative offices from the University Heights Complex to the main campus will save UTSA $1 million annually.
