EDU Social

EDU Social is a tool that allows SXSW EDU registrants to search for other attendees, as well as book or modify your hotel reservation. Once you are registered, upload your photo, bio, social links, and more, and connect with new connections and friends before, during, and after SXSW EDU 2025. For more information, browse the EDU Social FAQ.


Build Your Schedule

Once the 2025 SXSW EDU Schedule launches this fall, customize your own list of must-see events and continue to browse as programming is added leading up to March. Date, time, and venue details will automatically update when that information is available closer to the event.


SXSW EDU GO is the official mobile app for the annual SXSW EDU Conference & Festival. With SXSW EDU GO, build your schedule, get event recommendations, network with other attendees, and more.

Download for iOS or Android and then sign in with your SXSW EDU credentials to unlock app features.



SXSW EDU 2025 will largely take place at the Austin Convention Center and the Hilton Austin Downtown, with additional events scheduled at walkable venues.

Book Your Hotel

SXSW EDU Housing & Travel partners with the best hotels in the Downtown Austin area, so registrants have exclusive access to the lowest rates. Our hotel inventory can be accessed after registration, through the custom booking link provided via email or through your SXSW Cart.

Book & Double Check Your Flight

Book flights early at the best available rates to save — you have much more important things to spend your money on, like tacos and barbecue.

Getting Around Austin

Once you arrive in Austin, don’t wait around for a ride at the airport. After you book your flight, switch over to the car hire tab in the travel tool and have a ride waiting for you when you fly in.

Browse more transportation options on the Getting Around page.
