WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

The UNCW College Republicans and the campaign for Donald Trump will rent Trask Coliseum for two days at a cost of $11,500 to hold a campaign rally for Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, according to a contract between those groups and UNC Wilmington. 

Those details were revealed Monday from a public records request to the university. The cost does not include security, cleanup and staffing, which would add to the expenses.

The contract will allow the Trump campaign the use of the main basketball court, the men's and women's tennis locker rooms, the Seahawk media room and the Golden Hawk room.  UNC Wilmington police will work alongside the Wilmington Police Department and Secret Service.

The contract also allows for the sale of merchandise from the Trump campaign at designated locations to be determined.
