What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
For the most hassle-free experience, we greatly encourage public transportation, like CapMetro and/or ride-shares! Or cycle to the conference using one of the numerous bike routes accessible to campus.
Otherwise, the most convenient and ample parking is available in the underground garage attached to the AT&T Conference Center. The daily parking rate (up to 8 hours) is $15. Rowling Hall is within a short walking distance from the garage.
While there is no free parking on the UT campus, there are nine conveniently located garages. No permit is required to park in the garages, just a fee based on the amount of time you park. Visitors can ride UT Shuttles or Capital Metro local bus routes for $1 or express service bus routes for $2.50.
If you're coming south into Austin, Capital Metro’s MetroRail provides passenger rail services extending 32 miles from Leander.
If you are driving in from out of town, many of Capital Metro’s Park & Rides (.pdf) offer convenient places to park your car for free while you take the bus into campus.
Finally, if you’re flying into town, Capital Metro’s Airport Flyer offers rides between campus and the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
What should I bring to the event?
To make the most of your conference experience, we recommend bringing your laptop and charger, phone charger and plenty of business cards (or be digitally prepared with a screenshot of your LinkedIn QR code). We'll provide snacks, drinks and happy hour essentials!
