General Information

The Performing Arts Center (PAC) at Kauai Community College is available for performing arts and instructional programs of the University of Hawaii, and non-profit organizations involved in culture and the arts projects. Each non-profit organization must be officially registered with a 501-C status and possess an insurance policy. The insurance policy must specifically verify the existence of the necessary liability coverage, including the coverage of the University of Hawaii and the State of Hawaii, and their officers, employees and agents.


Most events require more technical assistance and equipment than is included in our base rental fee. We must review your technical requirements in the area of lighting, sound, etc., to determine whether we can accommodate your event and estimate your total cost for the use of the facility. The base rental fee is intended primarily to cover minimum operating expenses.


Deposit & Payment Policy

A deposit equivalent to the base rental rate multiplied by the number of performances is due 30 days prior to the event.


Checks should be made out to the University of Hawaii and forwarded with the signed Facility Use Agreement to:

Performing Arts Center reservations will not be confirmed until this deposit is received along with the signed Facility Use Agreement, proof of non-profit status and insurance.
