Parking Information: Hotel guests will be able to park at the hotel garage. Parking at the Hilton University of Houston costs $20 per day. 

Information for those who have requested parking validation coupons in advance: Welcome Center Parking Garage is the closest parking to the conference. Guest will pull a ticket while entering the Garage. Please hold on to this ticket because it will be needed at the exit gate when guests are leaving. When leaving, guests will insert their Entry Ticket first, then when the total amount owed is displayed on the screen, guests would scan the QR code which is on the coupon to validate parking.

Current faculty and students with a valid parking permit can park in any ungated/unreserved lot during this relaxed parking period. The closest lots to CBB are 19D and 21B.
