Request Facilities (External)

Events requested by outside organizations may include Malcolm X College employees or students, but are not required to do so. College staff may be present to support the event, but not to facilitate it. All external organizations must ensure their event coincides with the mission of the City Colleges of Chicago.
  • During the review of an event, a walk-through may be scheduled before a quote is sent to requestor. This walk-through will in no way guarantee an event.
  • Once the contract request is approved and returned, the requestor must sign a legally binding contract and provide general liability insurance.
  • The fully executed contract and insurance requirements must be met seven days prior to the event taking place or the event is subjected to be cancelled.
  • The College does not host personal or private events such as weddings, showers, anniversaries, parties and talent shows



Fees are based on the cost to the City Colleges of Chicago to provide the required space (i.e., additional security, engineering and janitorial staffs, and additional utility costs).


  • Applications must be submitted at least 45 days prior to the requested event date.
  • All external applications will be reviewed and responded to within approximately 14 calendar days.


External space requestors; not MX employees.
