Housing and transportation

General Page Main Content


We understand that patients travel from distant locations. Your course of treatment or participation in a clinical trial may require you to stay near San Antonio for an extended time.

We can refer patients to low-cost housing in the Medical Center. This is a list of local hotels that provide rooms for UT Health San Antonio MD Anderson Cancer Center patients at a reduced medical rate.



Patients may be eligible for transportation assistance services to their appointments. The Cancer Center operates an in-house van shuttle service for ambulatory patients who live within the 1604 Loop.

Patients who have limited mobility — use a wheelchair or walker — will be transported by a contracted transportation provider. Contract transportation also may be used when your appointment time falls outside normal hours of van operation. Patients must demonstrate a financial need or be over the age of 60 to be eligible for the service.

Hours of operation: 5 a.m. to 5 p.m.
