Facility Use

The primary use of Prince William Sound Community College facilities is for educational programs. All other use, other than the normal and regular activity of instruction, public service, and necessary administrative and support services, requires an agreement issued by the PWSCC’s Office of Administrative Services. Activities not on the semester schedule are subject to these procedures. This includes seminars, workshops, and other events.

Special Event Insurance and/or General Liability Insurance may be required when using our facilities. The PWSCC Office of Administrative Services will review the request and determine if insurance will be required based on the requested use/activity. Special Event Insurance is available for purchase from the University of Alaska and the PWSCC Office of Administrative Services will provide the application form if needed.

Upon official request, college facilities may be made available to non-college groups, according to the policies of the UA Board of Regents and in order of the priority listed below:

  1. All scheduled PWSCC academic programs.
  2. College sponsored faculty, administrative, student, or alumni activities.
  3. College sponsored or co-sponsored activities by private groups, e.g., Phi Theta Kappa, Prince William Sound Science Center lectures, and Relay for Life.
  4. Private activities for non-profit, non-college sponsored organizations are charged from the non-profit rate schedule.
  5. Private activities for profit, non-college sponsored organizations are charged at the commercial/public rate schedule.
