The University YMCA Student Center is funded primarily by student fees. As such, students are able to reserve event and meeting spaces in the UWY for no cost. UW Tacoma departments receive a discounted rate, while off-campus groups and community members will need to contact UW Tacoma Conference Services to discuss rate options.
Prior to making a reservation, in many cases, we are able to provide an estimate of costs. This is dependent upon a variety of factors though, so we are not able to provide a final cost estimate until a reservation has been confirmed. Once a space is confirmed, an emailed estimate will be sent separate from the reservation confirmation.
Payment is not due until after the event. A final invoice requesting payment will be sent within a few days after an event.
Students and UW Tacoma Departments have two options for payment of any costs associated with their reservation. At this time, we are not able to accept credit cards. You will notify us of your chosen payment option during the invoicing process.
UW Budget: Budget numbers will automatically be charged after your event has passed. Appropriate authorization for the budget use may be required.
Check: Cash or checkscan be submitted as payment, if a UW budget is not available. Please contact our office directly to discuss paying by cash or check.
Payments for reservations from off-campus/community groups will be coordinated by UW Tacoma Events & Conference Services and will be discussed during your reservation process.
