Facility Permits

Milwaukee Public School (MPS) buildings are available for use by the community through a Building Permit Application process.  In order to secure a building permit for an event, please download our Building Permit Application Form.  Every effort is made to honor permit requests.  However, please note the priority for building usage is as follows:

  1. First Priority:  Milwaukee Public Schools
  2. Second Priority:  MPS School-based parent groups
  3. Third Priority:  Individuals and community groups

MPS also offers 'Hours for Free Meeting Use' for public meetings.  The school Principal must be contacted directly for a permit to authorize such use.  Guidelines are available through Free Meeting Use Time Regulations.

The permit application process is facilitated by the MPS Department of Recreation & Community Services.

Please wait while we gather your results.
