Specific Logistical Questions

  1. Parking: What Do I Need To Know?

    TEDxUTA event parking will be available free of charge at the College Park Center parking lot (across the street from the Bluebonnet Ballroom). 

    If you are a UTA student, staff or faculty, UTA regulations regarding your parking permit still apply - with the added benefit of being able to park in the CPC event parking spots. 

    If you are not a UTA student, staff or faculty, you may only park at the "Blue Colored" CPC event parking spots - you do not need a voucher, parking permit, etc. from anyone to park there during our event day.

    To clarify, see and please note that the CPC event parking are the blue shaded parking areas above the College Park Center.
