Truckee Meadows Community College facilities, including grounds, are provided primarily for the support of the regular educational functions of the College and the activities necessary for the support of these functions. As such, College events take precedence over any other activities in the use of its facilities.
Facilities may be rented by outside agencies whose mission is in concert with that of TMCC. Preference will be given to those events that enhance the student experience.
The information below is provided as a guideline for scheduling an event and renting facilities at TMCC.
If you are a non-college external/community agency and need to schedule an event at TMCC, please follow these steps.
- Complete the Request to Schedule an Event Form
To request approval for an event to be held at TMCC, the requesting non-college party must complete the online Request to Schedule an Event Form.
