Information for Event Participants

The Texas Language Center holds workshops, conferences, and other events online using Zoom and in-person in several locations on campus. Typically, they are in the Texas Union (UNB building),  the Julius Glickman Conference Center within the RLP building (formerly CLA), or the Events Room of the McCombs School of Business (CBA building). Below you will find information about these locations along with suggested parking options. If you are looking for accommodations near the campus, see our list of Nearby Lodging Options. For help with registration and paying by credit card or Purchase Order, please see the Registration section. The final section on this page details our No-Show Request and Refund Policy.

Texas Union (UNB) Events

The Texas Union is located at the intersection of W. 24 th and Guadalupe streets. Refer to the Texas Union Levels Maps for locating specific rooms in the Texas Union. Visit the Texas Union's parking page or the UT-Austin  parking page for a variety of parking options, including the University Co-Op garage (currently $22 per day; entrance is on San Antonio St.), which is the closest at about a tenth of a mile away. There are several other UT-Austin garages as well as limited metered street parking nearby.

Glickman Center and other Patton Hall (RLP) Events

Some maps of campus do not show the new RLP building. It may be listed as the College of Liberal Arts (CLA) building. It was recently renamed to the Robert L. Patton hall (RLP). It is located between the Student Activity Center (SAC) and the Etter-Harbin Alumni Center (UTX) on the west side of San Jacinto Blvd. across from the DKR Texas Memorial Stadium.

The Glickman Center is on the south end of the first floor of Patton Hall (RLP). Other workshop locations include seminar rooms on the north end of the ground or first floor of RLP. 

This photo of the Patton Hall allows a 360-degree panoramic view of the area. If necessary, pan the photo by clicking and dragging to see the tall white building left of the Texas Tower.

No-Show Request and Refund Policy

Many of our events fill the virtual or physical room's capacity, and we maintain a waitlist of interested participants. If you find you cannot attend an event for which you have registered, please be so kind as to email us so we can extend the opportunity to someone on our list.

We are happy to refund your registration fees when notified more than a week before the event. We will deduct a $10 processing fee to offset the credit card fees we are charged and our time.

If we can fill your seat in the event, we can extend the refund policy to less than a week before the event, but understand that by then we have ordered catering and expended other resources that prevent us from recouping costs when your cancellation is so close to the event date.
