Living and Studying in San Antonio


OLLU’s proximity to downtown San Antonio -- just three miles away -- enhances the student experience and opens the door to numerous job and career possibilities.


Students can visit the renowned River Walk, learn about history at the Alamo, attend shows at the historic Majestic and Aztec theaters and shop at the Rivercenter Mall and Market Square, the largest Mexican market outside Mexico. In addition, the city offers a unique combination of ethnic cuisine, art galleries, symphony and dance.

As the central business district of the nation’s seventh largest city, downtown serves as the base for many of San Antonio’s strongest companies, such as H-E-B, Eye Care Centers of America, Bromley Originate Change and Kell Munoz Architects. Downtown is also home to City Hall and the Cadena-Reeves Justice Center, which employ many alumni. Another downtown perk for students: the main branch of the San Antonio Public Library.

It’s important to know that San Antonio serves as a regional hub for telecommunications, security, energy, finance, manufacturing, tourism, healthcare and international trade. The city provides a living laboratory for students to test out careers through internships and field placements.
