Facility Rental Frequently Asked Questions
Below you will find a list of common questions and answers that we receive regarding the booking and best methods for booking spaces on the De Anza College campus such as lecture rooms, PE facilities, outdoor locations, and similar spaces. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the Campus Facilities Rental Coordinator for any further explanation or questions. Feel free to call direct at (408) 864-8333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How far in advance can we book a facility location?
Typically the farthest we can book out a facility would be a quarter in advance as long as the class schedule is published for that time period. We cannot book farther in advance normally as we cannot guarantee any availability due to use by classes, De Anza sports teams, or other campus related events.
What is the policy regarding weather related cancellations for outdoor areas?
In the event that harsh weather conditions such as rain or bad air quality, we would be happy to reschedule the event to an open time or if needed we will provide a full refund of the facility rental fees.
Is WIFI included in the rental?
Unfortunately WIFI is not included as a Campus Wide ID (CWID) for enrolled students/staff is required. We are hoping to offer this in the future. Internet is available at all computer stations.
Are food and drinks allowed in the rental areas?
Food and drinks other than water are not allowed in any of our lecture rooms or PE areas unless otherwise indicated. You are welcome to have food or catering outside of lecture rooms or PE areas . The Campus Center is the only indoor location on campus that allows for food and drinks inside the event.
Are all locations at De Anza College available for rent?
Although much of the campus is available for rental, there are a handful of locations which are for internal use only. Some of these locations include: computer labs, science areas, art/music rooms, and areas that may contain sensitive equipment/materials.
Is a deposit required for booking?
What are the minimum and maximum allowed booking times?
Can I book during the week during regular class times?
Yes, as long as the location you are interested in booking is available you are welcome to book during regular weekly class times.
* Monday through Thursday tend to have much less availability than Friday through Sunday.
