Rental Reservation Process

For rental procedures, including rates, rules, and other information, see Rental Policy and Procedures. Please note that no events for a given church program year (September through August) will be scheduled prior to the annual calendar setting (May 1st of each year) so that consideration can be given to priority church-wide events.  

A full calendar of activities, by room, is maintained on AUUC’s calendar page. Please first consult the calendar to determine if desired space may be available for the date(s) and times(s) needed.

AUUC members and friends wishing to rent space should first read the Rental Procedures and then submit a calendaring request through the website

Individuals and organizations not affiliated with AUUC should submit requests for a one-time rental on a specific date to the Congregational Administrator (CA) at [email protected] or 703-503-4579.  The CA can provide information on availability, fees, and other requirements, and can also schedule a tour of the building and/or grounds.

For recurring, long-term rentals, a lease agreement will be negotiated.  Direct inquiries to [email protected].
