Thompson Conference Center

The Joe C. Thompson Conference Center (TCC) is a full-service, non-residential conference center located on The University of Texas at Austin campus. As Texas’ first educational conference center, TCC has a long history of supporting educational development and personal enrichment programs.

The center serves a variety of clients and hosts a wide assortment of educational programs and events throughout the year. Government entities use the center for workshops for their employees as well as for meetings with the general public. External use, with university co-sponsorship, includes not-for-profit educational events planned by corporations, non-profit agencies and business associations.
