To Rent a Community Room

Step 1: Complete an online community room request form at least two weeks in advance of your meeting date to determine availability.
Step 2: A co-op staff member will contact you within five business days of receiving your online request to confirm if you are able to rent the room.
Step 3: After receiving confirmation from co-op staff, you’ll be invited to sign and submit a user agreement form along with a $25 payment for each 2-hour block of time you are requesting to rent.

For questions, to make payment, or to place a catering order, please call or visit the store whose room you’d like to rent.

Note: Community Rooms are officially reserved only when the co-op has received your online payment and signed user agreement form. The payment is non-refundable but transferable to a new date within 1 year of purchase.
