How to Rent a School Facility

If you’ve reviewed the information on this website, (rental fees/categories, rules, insurance requirements etc.) and confirmed someone from your organization doesn’t already have a booking account, and you have your organizations approval to book school facilities on their behalf, then you’re ready to move forward with the school rental process.

The Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District Schools Board provides a seamless process to booking a school facility through a user-friendly online booking system.

Please Note: User permits for the next school year commences on July 1 and can take up to 3-4 weeks to complete. For new bookings throughout the school year, applications must be submitted no less than two (2) weeks prior to the start date.


Step 1: Create an Account

Access the Community Use of Schools Login/Create Account. It is through this online system that you will access all Community Use of School information including availability, fees, etc.

Step 2: Choose a Facility

Choose a facility that will suit your needs. The online software provides access to school facilities across Brant, Haldimand and Norfolk, such as gymnasiums, secondary classrooms, libraries and cafetorium’s. To inquire about availability before making your request, check out the online calendar where you can select a school and facility (cafe, single gym, double gym, etc.) to see what is currently available.

Step 3: Approval

Once an application has been approved, a permit will be issued electronically. There is no permittance on “pending” permits/bookings, they must be in an “approved” state to access requested school space. You will need to check the approved dates listed on the permit as some may have been removed. Please print a copy of your permit. A current copy of the permit should be with the group at all times.
