The policy of the Hastings Public Schools is to encourage use of its facilities by district residents. 

As of July 1, 2016, all community user groups will be charged a per permit fee to use school district facilities.  To learn more about this, review the Community Use of School Facilities 2017-18.  Here you’ll find information about which building spaces are available for rental; rental fees; policies regarding facility use.

To use a school district facility, you or your organization must submit a Facilities Request Form. For gym or auditorium requests, email your request form to tthompson@hastings.k12.mn.us.  You may also fax your permit request to to the attention of Teri Thompson at 651-480-7680 or mail it to Teri Thompson, Tilden Community Center, 310 River Street, Hastings, MN 55033.  

We began accepting facility requests for the 2017-18 school year on August 15, 2017. No facility requests for 2018-19 will be accepted until after August 15, 2018, and then processed in a timely manner. Please do not promote events for requested dates/facilities until you have received confirmation of your requests.


School Maps –

Only completed permit requests will be processed.  Requests are not taken over the phone.

Please do not advertise your event until you have received your permit via email.

  • Remember that the Hastings School District always has priority use of buildings.

You can check to see if a date is available at hastings.thatscommunityed.com/facilities/calendar.  You must still request your date by submitting a permit.


You will receive your permit via email within 72 hours.  Exceptions may be for requests at the Hastings High School Field House, Hastings High School Performing Arts Area, Hastings Middle School Auditorium.  These permit requests must be approved by school personnel outside Community Education before they are issued, so occasionally there is a longer wait time for processing.


INCIDENT or INJURY REPORT FORM – If an incident or injury occurs while you or your organization are using a school facility, please submit an incident/injury report.
