Collaborating Commons

Welcome to the CPACS Collaborating Commons! We are happy to share this space with your organization. The faculty and staff of CPACS designed this space to reflect the values of our college: collaboration, communication, transparency, inclusiveness, and flexibility. The unique design of the facility is intended to accommodate interaction, flexibility, group planning, and decision making. While CPACS-related events are given highest priority in using the space, the Commons facility is available to UNO departments and affiliated organizations for events that are consistent with the college's values and the facility's purpose.

Description of Facilities: The Collaborating Commons is composed of several spaces: CPACS 132 and 132D (Collaborating Commons East and West) are two large, flexible, multi-purpose spaces that separately accommodate 50 and 60 people, respectively, or 110 total. The two spaces are separated by a movable partition wall. CPACS 132B (at the far east side of the Commons) doubles as a laptop lab for 18 people that must also be reserved in advance. On the west side of the space, on the mezzanine level, are two additional breakout rooms (CPACS 137 and 138) that are available for events for 10 people each, but must be reserved separately.

To ensure smooth operations and optimal usage, please observe the following guidelines:
