Size and Location
The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, called UT Health San Antonio, has one central campus, as defined by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. However, in order to provide clarity for the general public and consumers of the university's patient, educational or community services, the university's central campus is consistently described to include multiple campus identities in all marketing, communications and advertising collateral. In San Antonio, Texas, they are the Joe R. & Teresa Lozano Long Campus and the Greehey Academic & Research Campus. In Laredo, Texas, is the regional campus, called the Regional Campus at Laredo.
