The newspaper is published once a week except during exam and holiday periods. Because it is student-run and independent from University administration, The Paisano is written completely by unpaid volunteers, with advertisements helping to support the costs associated with printing and distributing. The Paisano won a gold medal in 2000 from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. The office for the newspaper is located at 14545 Roadrunner Way, across the street from the Main UTSA campus.
