The best advice is to pack light. Lightweight clothing is recommended.
We suggest a dress for women and a sport coat and tie for men for special occasions.
We also encourage you to bring your traditional clothing from your country for cultural festivities.


San Antonio generally does not get a lot of rain, but we recommend purchasing a raincoat and/or an umbrella for rainy days. We do occasionally receive tropical storms from the Gulf of Mexico. Be prepared for occasional days of heavy rain.


Suggested attire

  • Warm months: shorts, light pants, and T-shirts
  • Winter months: pants, a sweater, long-sleeved shirt, or jacket
  • Other international students suggest that you bring some extra money for clothes and shopping at the malls once you get an idea of what other students are wearing.
