Reservation Approval

Completing the request form form does not guarantee your reservation. You will receive an email stating that your request has been received (if you do not receive a confirmation of receipt email, your request did not go through properly). If your meeting/trip has been approved, you will receive a Room Request Confirmation. Reservations will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. If your reservation does not have all the correct information or if Facilities has a question about your reservation, it will go into pending status which means the reservation is being held for you until we have more information. If a reservation is flagged as tentative, others are still able to book that date/time/vehicle.

Canceling or Changing Your Reservation

If you need to cancel a vehicle reservation be considerate and cancel it by emailing facilities@une.edu as you know that you no longer need the vehicle. You be be charged a fee if you are a no-show or cancel an hour or less before your reservation.

Changes to existing reservations can also be made by emailing facilities@une.edu. When you make changes, be as specific as possible. Example: I have a van #135 reservation on February 4, 2024 from 3–6 p.m. and need to change it to February 4, 2024 from 1–3 p.m. Do not just say I need to move it two hours earlier.
