All UT garages offer ADA reserved parking (available to vehicles valid placard or state-issued license plate) and elevators. Manor Garage is adjacent to The Moody Center and offers an ADA-accessible path to the arena. Trinity Garage and Brazos Garage are both a short walk to The Moody Center.

An ADA drop-off location is available on the east side of the Moody Center, accessible from Red River Street. Note that only active loading and un-loading is allowed in this area. From this location, attendees can enter the arena at the concourse level. 



The Moody Center offers a limited number of ADA-accessible seats, available on a first-come, first-served basis. Event staff at each entry door can assist guests in locating available ADA-accessible seats.
