Spring 2023 – DCC Lounge (BSB 235)

Come hang out and meet other people in the DCC Lounge! 

Lounge Hours (Spring 2023)

  • Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, 10am-4pm 

Out of love and care for our community, we remain committed to offering virtual access to our programs and collective life. If you’d like to Zoom into the Lounge, email us at!

  • 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 into the iPad.
  • If you are not a UIC student, staff, or faculty member, please be ready to show proof of vaccination.

We are improving our space, so there may be intermittent closures, which we’ll post about on our Facebook and Instagram account!

Otherwise, our space will be open for use on a drop-in basis and we have enough space for seven 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: or (312) 355-7050
