Does your facility host wedding receptions and dances/balls?
We do not have an in-house dance floor and are not equipped to support a wedding or dances/balls.
Can my event be canceled for any reason?
Though rare and highly unlikely, there are reasons for which a confirmed event can be cancelled. The Director reserves the right to cancel an event and will try to resolve any issues.
Are rates negotiable? Do you require a deposit?
The rates for the facility are fixed rates established by the University administration. We do not negotiate rates, but we will help you determine the most cost effective way to hold your event at our facility. An advance deposit is not required; however, we do require a Texas A&M account number on necessary forms when booking.
What parking lots are we allowed to park in? What are the times we can park in those lots?
Texas A&M University Transportation Services should be contacted for each event held at the APCC, as there is no free parking available for guests. Lot 43 & Fan Field are available for guests with valid TAMU parking passes only. Lot 41 is available for visitors to The George Bush Library and Museum during business hours only and is not available to guests visiting the APCC. The Transportation Services Special Event unit provides scheduling for parking, traffic devices and officer support for all your special event, conference and department guest needs. Requests are fulfilled based upon availability. For questions, please contact the Transportation Services Visitor Conference Coordinator at 979.862.2551.
