Facility Use



Facility Use


Carlsbad Unified School District is pleased to support private groups by providing facilities for their events for a fee. All school-related activities shall be given priority in the use of facilities and grounds under the Civic Center Act. Thereafter, the use shall be on a first-come, first-served basis of complete requests.


Prior approval as an organization is required before any rental application requests can be submitted. For non-profit organizations, please submit a copy of your 501C3 Letter of Approval in order to receive the non-profit rate. All applications must be submitted through the District website.


All applications must be received at the District at least three weeks in advance of the requested date. The application is first reviewed by the school site, which will determine if the facilities requested are available but will remain inactive on the calendar. After the school site has provided an initial approval of the request, the request will be routed to the District for final approval prior to the requested date. The District will then collect payment, Certificate of Insurance with an endorsement page listing the District as additionally insured for the scheduled event. Once payment and insurance are received at District, the scheduled event is routed to the Director of Facilities and Construction Management for final approval and is activated on the calendar. 

You must have final approval and an issued Facility Use Permit from the District prior to the scheduled event. Rentals require custodial services and are subject to additional fees.

Cultural Art Center

The calendar will open to outside (non-CUSD) organizations at the start of our fiscal year, 7/1/2016. Patrons are not permitted to enter the facility prior to the agreed start time. Dressing room and backstage areas of the CAC are limited. Events with more than 40 performers may be required to submit an additional School Dude request for use of adjacent classroom space at Carlsbad High School, which is subject to approval by the CHS administration.


Athletic fields located at Aviara Middle, Buena Vista Elementary, Hope Elementary, Jefferson Elementary, Kelly Elementary, Magnolia Elementary and Valley Middle, school-related activities shall be given priority in the use of facilities and grounds and then the City of Carlsbad Parks& Recreation Department, Thereafter, the use shall be on a first-come, first-served basis of complete requests.
