How to Rent Space?
You have 3 options:
(1) Submit request online - In order to submit requests online, you must first register as a web user. You will need either a Visa or a MasterCard. Debit or check cards are not accepted. Once your account is activated, all future facility use applications may then be completed online and we will figure out the charges for you. Click here for instructions.
(2) Fill out a printable form from our website - You must estimate the cost, print and mail the form to us with payment*. Applications will not be processed without payment. Overpayment may be refunded or credited to account.
(3) Pick up a facility use form from our office or from schools (for indoor school facilities only) - Hardcopy forms are still available from our office, and indoor school use applications, from all county public schools.
If you need assistance, come into our office to meet with one of our scheduling staff. Please call in advance to schedule an appointment to ensure the staff person you wish to see is available and to minimize your waiting time.
Please be advised that fees apply for ALL time you expect to be in a facility. Time needed for set-up, clean-up and for your participants to vacate the facility must be included in the hours you request. Utilities are now included in the base rental fee.
Regardless of the option you selected, user training is mandatory for indoor school use. No use permit will be issued until the user has completed the mandatory user training. If you have not already attended, please sign up by calling 240-777-2725. With the exception of 4 board meeting dates, classes are held every Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. at the Office of Community Use of Public Facilities. In addition, evening sessions at 5:30 p.m. are offered on 3/4/13, 6/3/13, 9/16/13 and 12/2/13. Evening sessions are held on the first floor, Suite 120. (Paid parking is available under our building at 255 Rockville Pike; free parking is available in the evenings at the County Office Building garage at corner of Monroe St. and E. Jefferson St. Unfortunately, CUPF cannot validate parking.)
(For sign language interpretation, please call 240-777-2725. A minimum of 5 business days advance notice is requested.)
* Please note that the County is using an electronic service (CheckAGAIN) to collect returned checks. If your check is returned unpaid, your account will be debited electronically for the original check amount and for the state's maximum allowable service fee. Payment by check constitutes authorization of these transactions. You may revoke your authorization by calling (800)666-5222 ext.2 to arrange payment for any outstanding checks and service fees due.
