Applying to Use a School

What is the application process?

Step 1: Create an Account

Access the Community Use of Schools online booking system to create an account. It is through this online system that you will access all Community Use of School information including availability, fees, etc.

Step 2: Choose a Facility

Choose a facility that will suit your needs. The online software provides access to school facilities across Brant, Haldimand and Norfolk, such as gymnasiums, classrooms, libraries and cafetoriums. To inquire about availability before making your request, check out the online calendar where you can select a school and facility (cafe, single gym, double gym, etc.) to see what is currently available. 

*NOTE: until further notice, only gyms and outdoor spaces will be available for rental due to current Covid-19 restrictions.

Step 3: Apply

Apply to rent a school facility using the fast and easy online booking system. If you are a new user you will need to create a new account or, if you are an existing user, you can simply login using your previously created account.

Step 4: Approval

Once an application has been approved, a permit will be issued electronically. You will need to check the approved dates listed on the permit as some may have been removed. Please print a copy of your permit. A current copy of the permit should be with the group at all times.

Step 5: Payment

All fees shall be paid in advance directly to the Board. The online Community Use of Schools system allows community use groups to pay by credit card.  For those who do not have a credit card, cheques can be made payable to, “BHNCDSB” and shall quote the number of the permit(s) being paid.

Cheques are to be sent to:
