Facility Rental

GateWay Community College (GWCC) is committed to the safety of our students, faculty, staff and all those who visit our campuses. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be scheduling and/or booking any of our spaces to be used for rental opportunities until further notice. Thank you for your understanding, and please stay safe.

Thank you for considering one of the GateWay Community College (GWCC) campuses for your next meeting or event. The facilities at GateWay are primarily used for the benefit of our student population and campus community. However, when space is available, we are pleased to support the needs of business, industry, non-profit organizations and the general community.

The College has a variety of rental venues ideal for meetings, workshops, retreats, conferences, and/or special events. GateWay is centrally located at the Washington campus, 108 North 40th Street in Phoenix, just north of the Sky Harbor International Airport and halfway between ASU's Tempe and Downtown Phoenix campuses. The Washington Campus is the only community college accessible by five freeways, bus, and the METRO Light Rail. We also have space available for use at our Central City Campus at 1245 E. Buckeye Road in Phoenix (formerly Maricopa Skill Center). Note that reservations can be made no more than 12-weeks in advance. Allow 72 hours turn-around time.

Please email us for rentals and quotes on room rates, at facilityrental@gatewaycc.edu.
