The Texas Tribune Festival has contracted blocks of guest rooms for registered Festival attendees at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center and the Hampton Inn & Suites Austin @ the University/Capital. A limited number of rooms are available at these special rates. We encourage you to book your hotel when you register because hotels are very likely to sell out.

These rooms can only be reserved through the TribFest Housing Desk after you have registered for the conference.


Discounted parking at the AT&T Center garage (1900 University Ave., Austin, TX 78705) is offered to all Festival attendees. Vouchers can be purchased at the Texas Tribune Festival info desk on the second floor of the AT&T Center.

Additional parking is available in the Brazos Garage on Brazos Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, and the Trinity Garage on the corner of MLK and Trinity Street.


Although all Festival venues are within easy walking distance on the UT-Austin campus, shuttles will be provided to transport Festival attendees to each venue between panels. An ADA-accessible shuttle will be available.
