Hogg Auditorium is located on the University of Texas campus at 2300 Whitis Ave (just east of Guadalupe on 24th street)

How to get here:

Hogg is easily accessible using Capital Metro north & south bound routes including the 1, 801, 803 and various others.

San Antonio Garage and the UT Coop Parking garage There is a FEE for both of these lots so please read all signs regarding parking prices.


Hogg is an older building and does not have up to date restrooms. Think the small restrooms at the Paramount Theater if you have attended a show there.

Because of this we will allow you to leave and use the restrooms in the nearby Texas Union. We will have ushers to guide you and you will be allowed re-entry via wristband or hand stamp.

Please keep this in mind it is not ideal but it’s where we are at the moment.

We will also have a master list of all tickets purchased and can check you off of that as well. Please have your ID out and ready for that when we come by.

UT Austin Hogg ushers will help you find your seats if you have any questions.
