Frank Erwin Center Ticket Information

Back to Top

The Frank Erwin Center is the on campus event center for the University of Texas. The Erwin Center, as it is commonly called, is only a few blocks from UT's Royal Memorial Stadium and the Texas State Capitol. Throughout the calendar year the Erwin Center hosts many great events, including; concerts, comedy shows and Texas Longhorn basketball games. The FEC is the permanent home for the University of Texas Men's and Women's basketball teams. It is also the host venue for UIL Boys and Girls Texas State Basketball Tournament.

The Erwin Center was the brainchild of University of Texas Regent Frank C. Erwin. He was the driving force behind the expansion at UT that led to the Erwin Center being built. In 1980 the University rewarded those efforts by naming the building after him. The Frank Erwin Center has a capacity of just over 16,000 for events. It has two primary levels, an upper-level commonly referred to as the Mezzanine and the lower-level or Arena-level; and floor seating for concerts. The Erwin Center also has a two dozen luxury suites that sit just above the Arena-level seats. The first 15 rows of the Arena-level seats are commonly referred to as Red River Seating.

Best For Sports I've been to several events at the Erwin Center and I must say that it is best suited for sporting events. Concerts are terrible there, but the sound kind of bounces around the venue. I have been in worse concert venues though. June 24, 2011
Terrible Parking, Centrally Located, and BIG This is the huge event center owned by the University of Texas. All the basketball games and indoor sports are great to watch there, but concerts and special events can be pretty hectic. Parking is an absolute nightmare. There is no where to park and the biggest lot is across the highway. It is at one of the busiest intersections in town, so large groups can stop traffic and back it up even more. This place has tons of seating and is usually very well staffed, so that's always nice. Just go early so you can find a decent place to park (or take cash to pay). August 9, 2010
