Parking Map & Instructions
Dear Teachers and Volunteers:
Please print these parking directions and teachers, please give this to the bus drivers. Click here for one printable document with the various Parking info for buses 2023.
Directions for buses:
NEW: The university requests that we split the drop off locations between the Quad bus loops and UAC Bus hub.
The Quad bus loop entrance is at the intersection of N. LBJ and Sessom. This bus loop can hold about 7 school buses.
The UAC Bus hub is on Woods St. in between N LBJ and Guadalupe St. This bus loop can hold about 5 school buses.
We are supposed to schedule the arrival times of visiting busses to arrive in groups not in excess of the capacity of the bus hub. Plan on it taking about 10 minutes for the busses to unload.
Once the students are dropped off, the buses can park in the P9 lot (Coliseum, also known as the Aquarena lot). If for some reason that lot is full due to a baseball game or other sporting event there will be room in the P10 West lot of Bobcat Stadium.
Stay on Sessom until it dead ends at Aquarena Springs Dr. – Turn left.
Pass through one light (Charles Austin Dr.) and the 1st parking area is on the right.
If that lot is full, the second parking lot is at the next light on the right (Post Rd).
Buses are not allowed to park at the Sessom lot (R2 & P5 on the map) because the asphalt is not made for the weight of buses. However, this is a decent alternative lot for the volunteers in the event the other parking garage is full. (Click on images to enlarge)

Parking in designated areas is FREE on weekends. (Make sure it’s not “Reserved”.)
