Rental Process

  1. To rent one of our facilities, browse our available spaces.
  2. Consider any event supplies and equipment you might need to rent for your event.
  3. Fill out the Facility Rental Request form a minimum of 3 weeks prior to the date of your event, filling out as many fields as possible for fastest service. Keep in mind that spaces you’re requesting might already be reserved, especially if your event is happening within the next three weeks.
  4. Once submitted, we will respond to your request within 3 to 5 business days to discuss your event details and collect any remaining information.
  5. Once details are discussed, you’ll receive a rental contract and more specific details on how to confirm your event. Events are confirmed when the rental contract has been signed and payment has been received. This process can take up to two or three weeks.

All rental rates depend on the details of your rental agreement. Submitting a Facility Rental Request does not automatically guarantee space. Please allow at least 21 days between the submission of your request and the date of your event.
