California Community Colleges abide by regulations to comply with the Civic Center Act in determining allowable costs for use
of college facilities or grounds for community use. The Civic Center Act requires Chabot College to recover direct costs for use,
opening/closing facilities, event oversight, janitorial services, utilities, maintenance, repair, restoration, and refurbishment
proportional to the use of the facilities or grounds. Chabot College rental fees are structured for “Fee-Charging Entities” and “Non-Fee
Charging Entities.” For a Fee-Charging Entity, the facility use fees are charged at “market rate” which has been determined by
a survey of surrounding entities. Non-Fee Charging rates are charged to entities which do not charge any type of entrance fee,
registration fee, participation fee, etc., for their organization or the event being held at Chabot College.
