For the protection of our students, families, and community, Civic Center rentals on San Diego Unified campuses and administrative sites are discontinued until further notice. Once our sites are re-opened for rentals, the only way to apply for use of a facility is by submitting a request online via Facilitron (see new information below).

Please check back on San Diego Unified’s website: from time-to-time for an update on when San Diego Unified will open school sites. We appreciate your understanding.

Introducing Our New Facility Request System

San Diego Unified School District is pleased to announce a new online facility request and rental system. Designed to provide a more positive user experience for our community, reservation requests can be submitted easily and managed more efficiently. Renters will be able to access photos and descriptions, see real-time availability, get estimated quotes, manage their requests, and pay online.

Facilitron's Facility Search Results

By partnering with Facilitron, San Diego Unified School District has launched custom facility use sites for the district and each school – allowing facility use requests to be submitted at any time. You can search, view, and request all district facilities online. 

Please note that San Diego Unified School District continues to make all final decisions on Facility Use requests.


The new Facilitron system is live. Moving forward, the only way to request the use of a district facility is by creating a Facilitron account and submitting a request online.


How to Create an Account

For those who had reservations prior to our new system, accounts have already been created for you, and an automated email has been sent to you to create a password to access your new renter account.

Civic Center Permits

The California Education Code "Civic Center Act" guides how organizations, clubs, and associations formed for recreational, educational, political, economic, artistic, or moral purposes are permitted by district policy to use school buildings and grounds. Such use is called “civic center use” and must be subordinate to, and not interfere with, the instructional program or other public school purposes. Civic center use may be on either a free, direct cost recovery, fair rental value, or commercial basis.
