Rent Building J - Events Center

Elgin Community College allows businesses, corporations, not-for-profit organizations, and community groups to rent college facilities and grounds when these spaces are not used for ECC programs, services, and activities. This rental service extends to various needs, including conferences, trade shows, and other events. It's important to note that college facilities cannot schedule personal and private social events.
