The University Teaching and Learning Commons is located at 1100 West Market St on the first floor. You may be asking – why would I come to 1100 W Market? Well, 1100 W Market is set-up just for faculty and staff to explore, develop and grow in their teaching practice.
And – we have excellent parking, coffee and snacks!
1100 West Market is located on the corner of Tate St. and West Market St., across from the State Employees Credit Union.
Parking is located directly behind the building entering from Tate St. and is open to A Passes, along with McIver, Oakland and Walker parking deck passes. Metered spots are also available.
1100 West Market St was designed for meeting and gathering. We have several small meeting and gathering spaces geared for collaboration.
The West Market Conference room seats 13 at a mix of low and counter height tables. The room has a full digital set up including a meeting owl and teleconferencing equipment, wall to wall dry erase boards, and a digital jam board. The space is ideal for your brainstorming needs, department retreats, writing groups, and more. (Mini Fridge, microwave and Keurig are available in the space.)
The 1100 W Market St Consulting room seats six to seven comfortably on couches and over-sized chairs. The room features an interactive dry erase/projection screen, a meeting owl for teleconference needs, lap boards for creating a comfortable working space. The space is ideal for small group brainstorming, retreats, meetings, writing groups and more. (Easy access to a refrigerator, microwave and Keurig.)
The Jane D Harris Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Library not only houses an amazing selection of books, but also a great collaborative space. The library has mixed seating options for eight, a dry erase board for brainstorming, and computer projection set up. The space is an open break out space – great for impromptu brainstorming, shorter meetings, and lunch! (Easy access to a refrigerator, microwave and Keurig.)
The Faculty Center is located in the center of campus next to the EUC and the Alumni House. The Faculty Center can be reserved by faculty and staff for University-related business. The space features a projector and laptop with active learning-styled furniture. The space can accommodate up to 32 people sitting (49 people standing). *** NOTE, there has been a change in the Faculty Center Usage Policy. This will impact what groups and functions are able to reserve the Faculty Center for use. The Policy is located on the Office of the Provost web site here.
The Jane D. Harris Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Library features a large collection of books and resources for supporting teaching and learning on campus. The collection is open for browsing or for check-out. Books range from common best practices for all courses to specialized support for disciplines. Stop by and “check-out” all the resources we have to offer.

Jane served as the Academic ITC for the School of Health and Human Sciences, but was engaged in developing a campus culture for excellence in teaching and learning. She engaged UNCG in all of its various stages of teaching culture during her tenure. She continues to be an active member of the Greensboro and UNCG community.
The partnership between ITS: Learning Technology and UTLC: TIO is not only about support, but also about building dedicated course development resources. One of those resources is the Production Suite.
The Production Suite features a podcast studio, a one-button recording space, and a light board studio. Additionally, ITS: Learning Technology provides recording expertise through their team of audio and visual experts.
In 2018, the UTLC moved to 1100 W Market St and was joined by the ITS: Learning Technology team. This proximity has provided faculty and instructors with a one-stop shop for teaching support. When you come to 1100 W Market St, you will encounter a team focused on pedagogy through execution and delivery.
