Schools, Gymnasiums and Fields


The City of Yellowknife oversees the rental of classrooms, gymnasiums and fields at local schools during evenings and weekends.  User groups must sign a "use permit" prior to the rental, which outlines the provisions for supervision, insurance and security, use of equipment and damage. 

Please review the Rules and Guidelines for renting classroom space, gymnasiums and fields.

Rental Fees

The rental rates, availability, and restrictions for schools, gymnasiums and fields vary depending on the venue.  Current rates can be viewed below.  As of January 1, 2015, the facility rental rates now include the Infrastructure Replacement Fee.

For additional information about availability and bookings, please visit our Bookings and Rentals page or contact the Booking Clerk.
