Faculty Commons


  • 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 and is accessible only by 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 and will occasionally host pre-planned, pre-determined programming
  • When not reserved, the Faculty Commons is intended to provide a drop-in space for use by faculty
  • The Faculty Commons is not accessible to students although there may be programming or meetings in which students are included

Huddle Rooms

  • The Faculty Commons includes 2 semi-private huddle rooms which can be reserved via the UNCW Event Management System
  • Administrators who are scheduling the huddle rooms: Please be sure that a UNCW faculty member is present at the event or meeting


  • The Commons has work surfaces as well as soft seating and all the furniture can be easily reconfigured for a variety of scenarios


  • 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) 

Reserve Entire Space

  • To reserve the entire Faculty Commons for a UNCW faculty-related event, please contact the Randall Library Office of Facilities at RLfacility@uncw.edu
  • Because the Faculty Commons is intended as a drop-in space, reservations will be limited.
