Faculty and volunteers may park for free at the Trinity River Campus garage and use the shuttles provided for graduates and guests. Parking is also available at any publicly available parking garage or lot. View a map of the available parking lots near the Fort Worth Convention Center.

Some volunteer assignments will begin earlier in the morning, before the start of the 8 a.m. shuttles. Plan for parking accordingly.


All volunteers are required to check-in at room 121 E–F. Enter through Commerce St. entrance and follow volunteer signs to your right.


Some volunteers will be required to attend rehearsal. Be sure to check your volunteer assignment to see if you are required to attend rehearsal. An email invite will be sent out to these volunteers.
