Directions to Campus

1. You may have to take a taxi at your expense. If you take a cab, simply ask the driver to take you to the Holiday Inn at Town Lake on Interstate Highway 35 and Town Lake Road, very easy to get to from either north or south IH-35. The hotel address is simply IH35 & Town Lake Rd. Their phone number is (512) 472-8211. The hotel is on the north bank of "Town Lake," which is what we call the Colorado River as it passes through our fair city. The hotel is easily visible from the highway. Or you can come to UT campus, and find the conference venue for us to take you to your hotel.

2. The main conference venue, the Texas Union, is on the UT campus on the east side of Guadalupe Street, just
south of 24th Street.

3. The University of Texas is a city--the student population is one of the largest in the country. If you do not print and
keep this in your travel bag, it will take three days to find anyone who knows that there is a conference going on!
