Parking. You have three main options:

  1. The 27th St. garage is located one block away from Duren Hall, which is on the north end of campus. You would have to pay the garage fee.
  2. Brazos garage is located on the south end of campus near the symposium location. If you register by July 1, you can pick up a parking pass at registration, but the parking pass is only valid for Brazos garage on August 3 and August 4. (If you arrive Thursday, this is your best option. Go to Duren and check in and unload, drive to Brazos and park, walk to the symposium. You do not need the parking pass until you exit.)
  3. There is limited street parking available around Duren Hall, most (but not all)  requires payment and may have a limit on the number of hours you may park there. If you go a bit farther north, you may be able to find free street parking given it is summer.
