Policies and Procedures

College, Board and State policies on facility usage:

NVCC sponsors hundreds of credit and credit-free classes, numerous music, drama and art productions and concerts, as well as conferences and community service events throughout the year. The college often co-sponsors major events with area agencies and organizations to promote community involvement. All facility requests are subject to approval by the Dean of Administration, who is the designee of the President.

Public use of facilities cannot conflict with priorities of the institution, Connecticut state laws, Board policy or Campus guidelines. 

College policy sets the priority for scheduling of facility use as follows:

  1. Credit courses
  2. Non-Credit courses
  3. Remaining rooms (if any) are available for scheduling through OFSEP.  Some classrooms are used between semesters for special programs.

Requests for use of NVCC facilities are received continuously throughout the year. These requests are reviewed for compliance with state law, Board policy, and campus guidelines, and are subject to approval prior to assignment of space and/or event planning. Special sessions, programs, and events may be planned by faculty, staff, approved campus organizations, and approved community organizations and are subject to annual review.
