Revocable Permit

Conditions for the Occasional Use of University at Albany Facilities by Non-Commercial Entities

University at Albany Facilities are available for rental to external non-profit organizations. In order to rent a space for short term use, the University will issue a Revocable Permit. Instructions and application materials are available via a link on the left hand side of this page.

Please pay special attention to the revised instructions on the Revocable Permit - we now have a separate permit application for events where minors will be on campus for a Covered Activity.

A Covered Activity is a program or activity sponsored or approved by the University or a University-affiliated organization, or an activity conducted by a vendor, licensee or permittee for which a license or permit for use of University facilities has been approved, occurring on or off campus, for the duration of which the responsibility for custody, control and supervision of children is vested in the University, University-affiliated organization or the vendor, licensee or permittee so approved. This policy is not applicable to university on-campus child care centers.

Any event where minors will be in the custody of a parent or legal guardian is not a Covered Activity.

State University guidelines generally prohibit the University from providing space to commercial organizations.

Facilities available: Visit our Events Management System page to learn more about available spaces on the UAlbany campuses and to book your event online!
