ADA Nationals at UT Dallas

2018 — Dallas, TX/US

We are excited to see you in Dallas for ADA nationals. Below are a list of logistical items that we hope will make your stay pleasant and keep things moving smoothly. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.


Parking passes will be available at registration. Parking is permitted in lots C, D or PS1 in any GOLD or GREEN spaces. I recommend PS1 as It’s the closest to the JSOM building where a bulk of the rounds and meals are served. Lots can be located on this map -


From the Wyndham – Turn left onto Coit road to Campbell. Turn right on Campbell road to Armstrong (this is the main entrance to UTD). Turn left onto Armstrong and as it forks follow it to the right. Stay to the right until you reach N. Loop Rd, then turn left. The Parking structure P1 is on your right.


UTD Guest network is available for everyone. Instruction for logging on are here-

Username and password are available at the above website.


UTD is a Tobacco-Free Campus:

The use of tobacco products (cigarettes, cigars, pipes, water pipes, hookahs, electronic cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, snuff, chewing tobacco, electronic nicotine delivery systems, etc.) is prohibited everywhere on University property in order to create a healthier work, research and learning environment.


If you have more questions are wish to read the entire policy, it is available here -
