Facilities Rentals

Rockland Community College’s friendly atmosphere and outstanding facilities – the ideal place to host your event!

RCC is truly here to serve the community and some of our facilities and lovely grounds are available for rental to the public. We host a variety of activities including major trade shows, conferences, and theatrical presentations.

Each facility has certain requirements and restrictions; however, the following is generally common to all spaces:

  1. The College’s first priority is to provide space for College-sponsored functions.
  2. Normally, facility usage may not be scheduled more than three (3) months in advance. Earlier requests must be approved by College Administration.
  3. All external groups wishing to use RCC’s Facilities may check the Available Facilities section below for the space they are interested in.
    NOTE: We cannot put a facility on “hold” until a fully executed application has been received.
  4. Once application is received, all external groups must submit a Certificate of Insurance with it.  A Certificate of Insurance is required for all events on RCC’s Campus.
    1. The Certificate must include:
      • General Liability each occurrence $1,000,000
      • Personal & Adv Injury each occurrence $1,000,000
      • Med. Expense any one person each occurrence $5,000
      • Damage to Rented Premises $50,000
      • General Aggregate $2,000,000
      • Excess / Umbrella Liability each occurrence $1,000,000
    2. The group renting space must have Statutory Worker’s Compensation and Employer’s Liability Insurance for its workers.
    3. The Certificate must be submitted to the RCC Department hosting the event fourteen (14) days in advance of the event date. Failure to submit proof of adequate insurance may result in cancellation of a scheduled event.
    4. The Certificate of Insurance should name Rockland Community College and the County of Rockland as co-insured and include each specific date (s) of use. Each user will be liable for damages that require repair or replacement. RCC is not responsible for loss or damage to equipment or property owned by the user, its agents, employees, audiences or guests. For selected events, liability limits may be increased and if auto vehicles involved additional auto liability will be required.
  5. Payment for the use of RCC facilities and charges for personnel assigned to the event, equipment used and additional services are in accordance with the pre-established fee schedule for that space.
    Fees involved include rental fees, maintenance fees, security fees, personnel fees and any other associates fees. Invoices will be based on actual use and therefore, will be processed based on the agreement between the user and RCC. Invoices that are more than 30 days past due will be subject to a 5% late fee and if an account remains unpaid, will be subject to an additional 5% late quarterly fee until payment is fully accounted for. RCC reserves the right to require a nonrefundable deposit.
  6. RCC reserves the right to require one or more part-time professional staff to oversee event logistics at the cost of the Facility User.
  7. A 501C-3 tax exempt certificate will be required for all groups that claim non-profit status. The non profit organization named on the tax exempt certificate must match the non-profit named on the facilities use application.
  8. Use of alcohol, illegal drugs and tobacco products is prohibited on RCC Facilities.
  9. RCC reserves the right to review all advertisements of outside groups using the facility prior to publication.
  10. RCC reserves the right to deny the use of its facilities to any organization whose goals and philosophies are not consistent with the mission of RCC.
  11. RCC reserves the right to require additional security and / or personnel to events at the cost of the facilities user group. Security needs will be determined by the College’s Director of Public Safety.
  12. RCC reserves the right to deny use of its equipment or technicians needed to operate the equipment if they are not available or not in the best interest of the College.
  13. When RCC is closed due to inclement weather or emergency situations, all campus events will be cancelled. Events at the Eugene Levy Fieldhouse and Cultural Arts Theater will be based on a case by case basis when involving inclement weather but no events will be allowed if the County of Rockland declares an emergency.
  14. Rental parties will honor the RCC food service contract with Lessing’s when applicable.
  15. Certain facilities requests will require additional requirements which will be included in the contract with RCC and that external group for that space.

In its years of service to Rockland, the College’s Cultural Arts Center Theater has served as a focus for cultural and social events of interest to the students and public we benefit. As use of the facilities has expanded, many competing demands for scheduling and staff support have emerged. It is therefore necessary for the College to institute the following Cultural Arts Theater guidelines and procedures to ensure that we continue to maintain the highest level of service to all constituencies who are eligible to utilize this facility.

Please note that theater availability will be scheduled in the following order of priority:

  1. RCC academic classes and programs, College organizations or other sponsored events.
    College departments and student activities are required to request dates for use of the theater in the next school year prior to commencement of the prior year (no later than June 30). Community organizations are permitted to schedule events on July 1, and continuing availability cannot be guaranteed.
    NOTE: The Theater is booked with college classes and events most days of the year, particularly Monday through Friday. No college class will be evicted from the space to accommodate any organization.
  2. Rockland County not-for-profit [501(c)(3)] arts organizations and County of Rockland-sponsored official events.
