DCC lounge

Fall 2021 – DCC Lounge (BSB 235)

Out of love and care for our communities, we will continue to hold most of our programs virtually. As the semester progresses, we may consider offering some hybrid programs. For members of the UIC community who need to be on-campus, limited spots are available in our physical space.

Our lounge will be open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10:00am to 3:00pm.

  • Sign-in to the center using the iPad located at the front desk. Scan the QR Code with your mobile device or enter your information manually into the iPad.
  • Show DCC Staff your Daily Pass (go.uic.edu/DailyPass).

Our space will be open for use on a drop-in basis, and we have enough space for four people at a time, plus one (lovely) staff member. Find out where we’re located and how to get there!

We ask that anyone who wants to use our space follow our community agreements. These guidelines may change in response to the ongoing situation on campus and beyond.

In these times, as ever, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to talk about any access needs or concerns:

dcc@uic.edu or (312) 355-7050
