Facilities Usage

The facilities of Keene State College exist primarily to support approved academic and co-curricular programs and events. The College gives priority for use of its facilities to College organizations and groups, College departments, and members of the College community.

The College recognizes its role as a public institution in the state and the local community, and seeks to make its facilities available for events sponsored by external groups which do not conflict with institutional priorities and remain within the limits of its resources.

In fulfilling its mission, the College recognizes free inquiry and free expression as indispensable components in the examination of ideas, and scheduling decisions are not made to restrict such expression.

  3. To facilitate access to facilities for both internal and external groups
  4. To address legal and financial issues pertinent to facility use and
