Elliott University Center

Elliott University Center (EUC) has been literally and symbolically identified as UNCG’s center since it opened in 1953. It is a familiar home base for students, faculty, and staff; a meeting place for activities, events, and ceremonies; and a greeting place for campus visitors. Located at a key pedestrian crossroads on campus, the EUC is convenient for most of the UNCG community at some time each day.

Day-to-day operations in the EUC and the coordination of events and activities held in the building are the responsibility of the Office of Elliott University Center.

The EUC houses spaces consisting of a 480-seat auditorium; a multicultural resource center; a meditation center; meeting rooms with state-of-the-art technology; open lounge areas; as well as meeting and office spaces for student organizations and offices including the Office of Campus Activities and Programs, the Career Services Center, Disability Services, the Office of Orientation and Family Programs, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Office of Leadership and Service Learning, and the Office for Adult Students. The UNCG FirstCard Center, UNCG Bookstore, and the University Box Office and Arts Information Center are also housed within the EUC.

Dining options in the Elliott University Center include Burger King™, Chick-Fil-A® Express, Quiznos® Sub, Kettle Classics, Pizza Hut Express, the Salad Garden™, and a quick place to pick up Krispy Kreme Doughnuts® daily. Cranberry Farms serves up rotisserie chicken and home-style favorites appropriately within a student budget. Charlie’s Fine Coffees and More is a student favorite for coffee, tea, and specialty drinks, conveniently located in the EUC. A campus grocery store, The Marketplace, is located on the first floor and offers fresh produce, convenience items, and a special section of organic, vegetarian, vegan, and fat-free products.

Retail space is maintained by the University Bookstore. Wachovia, Bank of America, and Cash Points (State Employees Credit Union) automated teller machines (ATMs) are located near the Information Desk. For more information, please visit
