Cubberley Community Center

Located in south Palo Alto, Cubberley Community Center (CUBB) is a unique facility, which has been operated by the City of Palo Alto since 1990. Space is available for rent by the hour, either one-time or on a regular basis for community meetings, seminars, social events, dances, theatre performances, music rehearsals and athletic events. Cubberley is also home to many long-term leasers that provide services to the community in areas of education, health, child care, dance, and music instruction. 

Cubberley Community Center Booking Process

  • Cubberley Community Center may be reserved for events up to one (1) year in advance. Applications can be submitted via email, fax, or turned in at the community center front desk. Once an application is approved, a permit will be emailed with event details, rental fees, and the payment plan.

  • For one-time rentals, we can process the payment in full upon approval of your application, or break your payments down into two (2) installments. The first installment is one-half (1/2) of your total rental and is due immediately upon approval of your application. You have ten (10) days to cancel with no cancellation fees. After the ten (10) days has passed, the amount is no longer refundable. The final installment is due no later than one (1) month prior to your event date. Failure to pay by your payment deadlines will result in the immediate cancellation of your event. For reoccurring rentals, you will be placed on a monthly payment plan. Credit card will be required. 

  • We require at least one (1) month notice for application submissions. Availability of rooms can be seen in links below or provided by phone or email. No date will be held until an application is submitted.

  • For self-guided tours, please call or email to schedule an appointment. Drop-ins are accepted, however we ask that you follow up ahead of time in case there is an event taking place.
