Facilities at Sacramento City College are available for use by faculty, staff, and students for College related internal functions and events. The Facilities office schedules all events, meetings or any campus related function that is not a “credit class”.
For an event to qualify as a “campus event,” it must meet the following criteria (LRCCD Policy P-1511):
- Its primary purpose is to support the campus mission.
- The activity/event must be under control/supervision of a District employee for the duration of the event.
- Any fees charged for the event are deposited into District/Campus accounts and used to support activities or campus programs.
For activities not meeting all of the criteria, please refer to the Facility Use – Community Events webpage.
Process for Scheduling Facilities
Requests to use facilities for campus events must be on the Scheduling Campus Facilities Form and submitted to Facilities/Operations. If you already submitted a Scheduling Campus Facilities form and need to include a diagram, please submit your set-up information on the Event Layout Form.
After requestors complete the Scheduling Campus Facilities Form it will submit to our office. Upon receiving your request and depending on the type of facility requested, we will check availability on our Facilities Use Calendar, as well as class schedules if it is a classroom. If the room is available, we will add it to our Facilities Use Calendar and email a confirmation back to requestor. If the room is not available, we will find another room and notify requestor.
If your event requires a set up, you will be instructed to complete that section on the Scheduling Campus Facilities form. Depending on the set up, you may have to submit an Event Layout Form to specify arrangement of tables, chairs, etc. This form will need to be submitted separate from the Scheduling Campus Facilities form as it must be printed and handwritten then either scanned and emailed to Amy Virdure, hand delivered or sent through intercampus mail.

“How soon will I hear back regarding my request?”
While being sensitive to your event deadlines for preparations, advertisements and planning, please allow some flexibility and time to process your request to include on the weekly Facilities Use Calendar. We receive many requests daily, so in order to prioritize they are considered by the date of the event so we can accommodate those that are approaching soonest. Due to this process, there is not a set time frame; however a confirmation will be e-mailed to sender in as timely a manner as possible.
