Rental FAQ

Here are the answers to frequently asked questions about renting the Community Center.

How do I rent the facility?

We have gone fully digital. Click here to request a date. You will need to create an account first. From there, select the space and date you wish to reserve. Make sure you have the correct rental rate selected. For example, only residents of Windsor Heights are able to use the resident rate. Once submitted, we will review your request. When approved, we will send you a link to pay your deposit. We do not hold dates until the deposit has been paid. The deposit is due immediately. All events within 60 days require the full payment rather than a deposit. We will make multiple attempts to contact you, but if the deposit has not been paid within 24 hours of approval notification, your reservation request will be canceled.

Rental requests will be reviewed Monday-Friday between 8 am and 4 pm. Any requests made in the evenings/weekends will be reviewed the next business day.

How can I tour the facility?

Tours are available by appointment only. Please email for availability. 

Tours are limited to no more than 30 minutes. If another renter chooses to rent the space during your scheduled tour time, we will contact you to reschedule. If you need to reschedule or cancel for any reason, please email Any tour that no-shows with no notice may or may not be rescheduled at the City's discretion.

Why does it say "requires account flag"?

You have the wrong rate selected (only non-profit organizations can use the non-profit rate). Click the arrow next to the rate to select the correct option (see image below).

Why can I not see later times for my rental to end?

We require at least two hours in between rentals for cleaning and inspection. For example, if there is a rental on your desired date that is booked for 4 pm, then your rental needs to end by 2 pm. Our online system will not let you choose an end time beyond 2 pm. Our facility also closes at midnight.

I'm a resident of Windsor Heights, but the resident rate is unavailable.

Make sure you have your address listed and spelled correctly in your account information. Our system will not let you use the rate if any of this information is incorrect. Please also note that we do not offer a resident rate on Saturdays.

How do I see what dates are available?

You will need to visit our online rental system by clicking here. Select the space size that you are interested in. If the date on the calendar appears orange, then there is a rental that day, but all available times are listed on the right (or below if you are using a smartphone). If the date is green that means there are no reservations. Please email with any questions.
