Guest Parking for Your Meeting or Event
Reservations for meeting or event parking should be made at the time of your meeting reservation request. Please direct your visitors for meetings and events to our Guest Parking. The CEC will do everything possible to reserve spaces for your event, however, parking in Lot E is not guaranteed and the parking attendant may issue instructions on where to park if parking is unavailable in Lot E at the time of check-in.
Lot E is staffed from 7 A.M. until 5 P.M. Monday through Fridays. No stalls can be reserved while the attendant is off duty, and the lot becomes a first-come, first-served visitor lot. If you intend to drop-off or pick-up guests by bus please contact Vanessa Rath, UNO Parking/Transit Manager, at 402-554-7277, firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
There is no reservation without written confirmation. If you do not receive a confirmation by email, the requesting group or organization is responsible for contacting the CEC to determine the status of the request.
Signed Reservation Agreement
Reservation Agreements are sent at the time of your confirmation and must be signed and returned, within two (2) business days after confirmation is delivered, or the reservation will be canceled.
