TCC Director Patrick Watson


I am pleased to welcome you to the Joe C. Thompson Conference Center on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin. As Texas’ first educational conference center, we have a 36-year tradition of hosting over 30,000 conferences and events which have served the educational needs of millions of participants.

Our convenient central location and the expertise of the TCC staff have created what we believe to be one of the premier conference and event experiences on a college campus. The staff servicing the Conference Center has many years experience in planning, organizing, and facilitating a variety of programs, conferences, and special events. These events range in scope from meetings and retreats to seminars, workshops, symposiums, UIL competitions and international conferences. TCC’s staff is dedicated to working with all types of organizations from campus to government agencies, associations, corporations and businesses.

We are eager to assist you with our exemplary service. We look forward to hosting your next event on The University of Texas at Austin campus.

Thank you and welcome to our conference center.
