Chapter 3 Section 2 Facilities

Year Adopted: 1992
Revised: 2000, 2006, 2017, 2018


Clover Park Technical College is an educational institution provided and maintained by the people of the state of Washington. The college reserves its facilities, buildings and grounds for those activities that are related to its educational mission. At other times, the college facilities may be made available to other individuals and organizations provided that use is in congruence with public interest and welfare, subject to the laws of the state of Washington and the rules and regulations of the college.

The college will comply with the Statewide Space Use Policy 1.01 for the efficient use of state facilities and in support of building a modern work environment.

Primary consideration will be given to activities specifically related to the college's business and mission. No arrangements will be made that interfere with, or operate to the detriment of the college.

Reasonable conditions may be imposed to regulate the timeliness of requests, appropriateness of space assigned, time of use, and to ensure proper maintenance of the facilities. The College reserves the right to prohibit the use of college facilities by groups or activities which are secret or restrict membership or attendance in a manner inconsistent with the public and nondiscriminatory organizations as defined and listed by the Attorney General of the United States. 

Signed Policy



College facilities are cleaned and maintained on a regular schedule by Facilities Services. Any emergency situation requiring immediate attention should be directed to the Facilities Department at X5560. All other requests should be made through the work order system.

Room Moves

The Move Committee is comprised of the Director of Facilities Services and the Director of Information Technology. Requests must be made through an individual’s Vice President to the Move Committee. Moves will be made on a priority basis and as personnel and resources are available. When the Move Committee encounters issues with the requested move for any of the following reasons: cost, impact on other divisions, repetitious or short term in nature, the move request will be forwarded to the Vice President for Finance and Administration for possible escalation to administration.

Clover Park Technical college facilities are smoke free. The use of tobacco, electronic cigarettes, and related products is prohibited on College premises or in any location where such use is prohibited, including twenty-five feet from entrances, exits, windows that open, and ventilation intakes of any building owned, leased or operated by the college. “Related products” include, but are not limited to cigarettes, pipes, bidi, clove cigarettes, water pipes, hookahs, chewing tobacco, and snuff. The use of tobacco and electronic smoking devices is approved at designated outdoor sites.

Use of Alcoholic Beverages on Campus

Consumption of alcoholic beverages in or on college-owned or college-operated facilities is strictly prohibited unless approved by the President or designee.

All groups qualifying for use of alcoholic beverages must adhere to the rules and regulations of the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board.

Prohibited Conduct

The use or possession of unlawful drugs or narcotics, not medically prescribed, on College property or at College functions, is prohibited. Students under the influence of intoxicants, unlawful drugs or narcotics while in College facilities are subject to disciplinary action.

The use or possession of marijuana, including medically prescribed marijuana, is a violation of federal law and is therefore prohibited.
