AUSTIN TRAVEL AND LODGING INFORMATIONWhen making travel arrangements, it’s important to note that each week, the AP Summer Institutes at UT Austin run Monday - Thursday, 8AM to 4:45PM. You may not receive a certificate of completion if you have not attended the entirety of the institute. So please plan your travel arrangements appropriately.
Participants may choose to stay at the Hampton Inn & Suites - University/Capitol, in a dormitory on campus or find lodging on their own as they please. Some suggestions can be found at the following link: http://www.utexas.edu/ce/tcc/attend/local-accommodations. As soon as details are finalized with the Hampton Inn & Suites and with the Division of Housing on the UT campus, information will be made available on this site.
