    Hiring Computer Rooms

    Hello,

    As a school we hire out various facilities, such as the Gym, All-weather pitch, swimming pool etc. We've recently been asked about hiring a computer suite to run Photo Editing courses.

    What sort of cost do you think is reasonable for this, or what do you charge if your school also provides this service?

    Thanks,

    Rob

    If I'm honest I wouldn't, I don't allow people who do not work for the school/ are students. At the end of the day its to much of a risk joe bloggs can walk in and start doing what he likes if he knows how. Over staff/students u have punishment as a deterront over joe bloggs u don't have as much.

    Just my 2p

    Provided you are supervising, and you keep an eye on everyone...have everyone sign a disclaimer, any slight damage to the PC, they will be charged FULL cost of the PC, and have a log of who sits where and when...

    Should be good. No disclaimer signed, no use of the PC

    *edit*

    We do this and charge £150 per hour for the use of the ICT suite dedicated for this purpose. Half of which comes to me for supervising.

    On Photoshop? Licensed via a school's site-wide agreement for Creative Suite? If so, double-check your Creative Suite license agreement that you're actually allowed to make it available to outside users like this - they might have to be properly enrolled as evening-class students or something.

    thats true, also if you are licensed through a schools agreement for windows you might not be able to do it - but i havn't read all the small print of a schools agreement. But if the courses are for profit it might not be covered.
