Location and Parking

Before attending an event at the Thompson Conference Center (TCC), please familiarize yourself with our location on campus and the location of parking that is available to you. You may want to visit the university's visitor parking page for answers to any questions you have about parking rules and regulations on campus. The official MyUT app is also available from the App Store or Google Play to access the campus map, CapMetro routes and more.


TCC is located on the northeast corner of UT Austin’s main campus, in central Austin, provides easy access via bus, shuttle, taxi, automobile and bicycle. TCC is one block away from IH-35, the main North-South artery of Austin, and a short drive from Airport Boulevard, the main route into town from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA). 


Complimentary parking is available on-site at TCC on a first-come, first-served basis in Lot 40, which is located at the intersection of Red River at Dean Keeton streets (2500 Red River Street for navigation purposes).

Additional paid parking is available nearby in Manor Garage (MAG) on Clyde Littlefield Drive. Attendees at events in TCC can have their Manor Garage parking tickets validated at the TCC reception office to receive a discount.
