The Technical College of the Lowcountry (TCL) welcomes collaboration with businesses, organizations, and individuals for the utilization of its buildings and facilities, whether for public service events or initiatives. When not in use by the college, these spaces are open for activities aligned with TCL’s workforce training and educational mission.

In response to internal growth and heightened demand for college resources, including its facilities, TCL has updated its External Facility Rental policies. Prior to submitting a request, please familiarize yourself with the TCL Facility Rental Policies and Procedures.

Key points to consider:

  1. To prioritize the needs of the college, rental requests will not be accepted more than 60 days in advance of the rental date. Personal or private events are not permitted.
  2. Due to high demand and ongoing construction of the FOODseum, the Culinary Institute of the South is not available to outside partners through 2024.
  3. Facility rentals operate on a self-service basis. TCL does not offer event support or coordination, encompassing tasks such as liaising with external agencies, event setup or breakdown, audiovisual assistance, facility management, or catering.
  4. Alcohol or wine service during events organized by external entities is strictly prohibited by the Technical College of the Lowcountry.

TCL Facility Rental Request Submission Process

External groups must obtain prior written approval to utilize campus buildings. To initiate this process, kindly email a completed TCL Facilities Request Form to . Your application will undergo review by college personnel to ensure adherence to policy and procedure. Please allow three to five business days for a response.

Upon approval, the requestor will receive a Facility Rental Agreement form detailing fee structures. Rates are contingent on organization and event type, ranging from $100 to $1300, with the college retaining the right to levy additional charges for security or custodial services depending on event specifications. A deposit equating to 30% of the total rental fee (or $500, whichever is less) must accompany the signed agreement to confirm the reservation.

Requests for rental submitted without the TCL Rental Request Form will not be considered for review. Forms must be completed in full to ensure accurate processing and evaluation, and they must be sent to the designated Events Email inbox. Submissions to email addresses other than the Events Email inbox will not be accepted.
