Use of College Facilities

GBC’s facilities, including campus grounds, are provided for the support of the regular educational functions of the college and the activities necessary for the support of these functions. College functions take precedence over other activities.

Sometimes community groups not affiliated with GBC conduct workshops and seminars in college facilities. If you want to reserve a meeting room, you need to complete a reservation form in person at Berg Hall with the Facilities Scheduler, 775.753. 2101, or at your local GBC Center.

College facilities may be used by private organizations (non-NSHE groups) subject to availability, an administrative fee, and proof of liability insurance.


Tobacco Free GBC

In response to student surveys and NRS 202.249 which states, “It is the public policy of the State of Nevada and the purpose of this statute to place restrictions on the smoking of tobacco in public places in order to protect the human health and safety...”, the Administration of Great Basin College has approved a “smoke free” campus. Smoking areas are designated outside certain buildings.

The policy is based primarily on state statute which says, in general, that smoking tobacco in any form is prohibited in any public building. It further states that a separate area is not specifically defined. Legal counsel has said that this has generally been interpreted to mean “outside” or a designated “outside area.”

In 1998, the GBC Administration voted to extend the prohibition to include all forms of tobacco use, making GBC a “tobacco free” campus.
