You are welcome to bring a spouse or close friend. There is no charge for this event.

Map and Parking:

For those coming to campus from elsewhere, this map and driving directions show how to locate the Alumni Center. There are several parking garages within walking distance of the Alumni Center. On this overview map, the Alumni Center is located in the lower right corner of the region marked 5. Each of the regions 3, 8, and 6 contain parking garages. For directions to each of these garages, see the following maps:

The region 5 map shows the Etter-Harbin Alumni Center to the lower right as the building with the code UTX. There is very limited parking in the garage located underneath the Alumni Center, which is available for outside parking beginning at 5pm. Regular surface parking on campus is restricted until 5:45pm, so is probably not a viable option for most attendees.
