Meeting Room Reservations

The meeting rooms in the Naperville Municipal Center are designed primarily to meet the operational needs of the City of Naperville and provide accommodations for educational, informational, cultural and civic functions of the Naperville community.

Please contact us if you are in need of meeting room space for your school, club, civic organization or not-for-profit group at a nominal fee, and with plenty of free parking.



In the event of a conflict, this list of priorities will prevail.

  1. Naperville City Council and staff meetings.
  2. City-initiated meetings including Planning and Zoning Commission, Transportation Advisory Board, Financial Advisory Board and all other advisory boards and commissions.
  3. Other agencies of government.
  4. Meetings of not-for-profit community groups and organizations whose aims are for educational, cultural or civic purposes. A copy of the Articles of Incorporation or Charter must be supplied every year.

No Endorsement 

Use of the Meeting Rooms does not constitute city endorsement of viewpoints expressed by participants in programs. No advertisement or announcement implying such endorsement will be permitted.

Equal Opportunity 

All activities taking place in the Meeting Rooms must be open to all citizens, regardless of age, sex, race, religion, national origin or physical handicaps. It is the responsibility of the group to provide any and all reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
