Welcome Center Garage Reservations

Parking may be available for reservation in the Welcome Center Garage for conferences and special events held at the Reitz Union or in nearby facilities. TAPS reserves the right to limit the number of spaces that may be reserved for each event.

  • A minimum of 20 spaces is required for garage reservations.
  • Due to the limited number of parking spaces in this garage and the high number of events held at the Reitz Union, reservations should be made as far in advance as possible.

Garage Reservation Fees and Policies

Normal garage operating hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Reservation Fee Schedule

All reservations will be billed for the total number of spaces reserved rather than spaces used. Please make sure that you have an accurate count of guests attending to ensure that you’re not billed for unused spaces.

For events occurring within normal operating hours, the charge for reserved parking will be $6 per space per day to reserve spaces for guests arriving anytime between 7:30 AM – 12:00 PM.

If spaces must be reserved for guests arriving between 12:00 PM – 4:30 PM, an additional charge of $2 per space per day will be assessed in order to guarantee those spaces (total cost $8 per space per day).

For events held during non-operating hours (after 4:30 PM on weekdays and anytime on weekends) the charge for reserved parking will be $2.50 per space plus a $50 administrative fee. TAPS reserves the right to charge additional fees as needed.

Event hosts may also choose to have their guests pay for their spaces individually upon arrival. For reservations where event hosts choose this option, the host will be charged as shown above for any unused spaces out of the total number reserved.

Hold Times

Spaces will be held until 30 minutes after the starting time of the event before being released for general use (event hosts may request a longer hold time for events if necessary).

TAPS cannot guarantee re-entry privileges for event reservations. Guests who remove their vehicles from the garage after parking may not have an available parking space upon re-entry.

Guest Identification

A permit provided by the event host with the name, date and time of the event is required to enter the reserved spaces.  Event hosts are required to submit a copy of their permit to TAPS to facilitate guest identification.
