Parking DetailsOn the weekends, you'll access the Texas School for the Deaf (TSD) campus via the Elizabeth Street employee entrance. (The school's main entrance, off of Congress Avenue will be closed on Sunday). Texas School for the Deaf campus map

The guard there at the Elizabeth Gate will be informed and expecting our group. They may stop you, or just wave you through since it's not a school day. Or, if no one is there on duty, you may need to press the call button, and wait for someone to respond through the intercom. Just announce that you are a Keep Austin Fed volunteer headed to orientation at the ERCOD building. They will permit access (i.e. raise the gate arm) remotely.

Once inside the TSD campus, at the stop sign, you can go either right or left, and drive all the way to the other (south) side of campus to the ERCOD building - the Educational Resource Center on Deafness. It's one of two brick "homes" you'll see, side-by-side, just inside the Congress Ave. gate.

ERCOD is the house closest to that main Congress gate. If you have any trouble finding it, please contact Keena at 512-658-4444.
