The Faculty Commons (RL2014) , a partnership between the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE/CFL) and Randall Library, is located on the second floor of the library (PDF) and is accessible by all UNCW faculty with a valid UNCW OneCard.
The Faculty Commons was created as a gathering place and collaborative space for UNCW faculty. The Faculty Commons also provides space for both the CTE/CFL and Randall Library to deliver programming that supports UNCW faculty. To these ends, the space will occasionally host pre-planned, pre-determined programming and, when not already reserved, provide a drop-in space for faculty use. The Commons has work surfaces as well as soft seating and all the furniture can be easily reconfigured for a variety of scenarios. Additionally, the Faculty Commons includes 2 semi-private huddle rooms which can be reserved via the UNCW Event Management System. The Commons is not accessible to students although there may be programming or meetings in which students are included.
All three spaces (the huddle rooms and the main space) are equipped with large screen displays, webcams, speakers and microphones. The huddle rooms require a laptop or tablet, which you can connect via HDMI, USB or wirelessly with the VIA app (PDF). The main room display comes equipped with a PC, or you can connect your own device with HDMI, VGA or wirelessly with the VIA app (PDF).
To reserve the entire Faculty Commons for a UNCW faculty-related event, please contact the Randall Library Office of Facilities at RLfacility [at] uncw.edu. Because the Faculty Commons is intended as a drop-in space, reservations will be limited.
