Location: San Antonio, Texas

Location is an important part of any educational experience. Incarnate Word is located in San Antonio, a dynamic Texas metropolis that is the eighth-largest city in the United States. San Antonio offers a rich mixture of cultural heritages derived from its Indigenous roots to the city's settlement in 1718 by groups from many countries throughout the world including Mexico, Spain, Germany, France and Ireland, to more recent arrivals from such locales as China, India, Puerto Rico and The Philippines.

San Antonio's proximity to Mexico -- about a two-hour drive from the border -- gives the city a distinctive Hispanic flavor as well as a strategic location for unique opportunities in cultural and business exchanges with our southern neighbor.

Austin, the capital of Texas, is just 70 miles north of UIW, while Corpus Christi, the gateway to the beaches of Padre Island, is approximately 140 miles to the southeast.
