Scattered throughout the SXSW EDU programming venues, lounges offer attendees a haven for relaxing, recharging, and connecting. Lounges are sponsor-supported and customized uniquely to offer attendees a destination for discovery during the event.

IDEA Public Schools Lounge
Come see what College For All looks like with IDEA Public Schools! On March 4-7th, IDEA Public Schools is descending upon SXSW EDU to share their story and get educators involved in their growing mission. Hear from real students in the Locker Gallery, take your perfect throwback yearbook photo, and hang out in our Graduation Lounge while you get to know IDEA! Refreshments will be served in the lounge, and prizes will be won by select guests.
