The Best Places To Charge Your Phone At THON 2023

Since THON Weekend is full of group pictures, Snapchat recordings, and, “Where the hell are you? I’m raising my hand, can you see me?” phone calls to friends, sometimes a portable charger isn’t enough. Luckily, we found some spots to recharge (literally and figuratively) so you can keep THONing hard.

AT&T Charging Ports

The easiest charging location to find is the AT&T charging station. Here, there are phone cubbies with a variety of charging chords. The stations are across from section 108.

BJC Concourse Outlets

Another charging option is the multiple outlets scattered around the BJC concourse. While they are sometimes easy to overlook, they are convenient. These outlets are located in small pockets of doorways, as well as beneath BJC glass displays.

Corner Outlets

While you need your own charging cord, the outlets are perfect for last-minute Canvas submissions and urgent phone calls, since you don’t need to place your phone on a designated shelf.

Some other good outlet locations include the space underneath the BJC’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame display and the various doorway pockets on the walls across from the THON floor.

It is important to add that there are outlets located at section entrances, but they are off-limits so as not to clog the entrances.
