The UC Auditorium is our only auditorium space in the University Center. It can seat 300 guests, and is equipped with a computer, screen, and projector, and an in-house sound system. It does NOT have theater-style lighting. For events in the Auditorium, the Coosa Room can serve as the green room for any guest speakers or performers. The UC Auditorium Use Policy can be found here.
The Tennessee Room is currently undergoing a complete renovation from the floor to the ceiling. We are creating a beautiful ballroom space with a lot of new technology that will greatly enhance all events that are scheduled in the room. Our timeline is to have the room completed by the end of February 2017. Here are a couple of architectural renderings of what the room will look like one the room is finished.
The Chattanooga Rooms (denoted at A, B, and C) are a multipurpose space that can be used as one large room or divided into two or three small rooms. As one large room with a banquet-style setting the Chattanooga Rooms can accommodate up to 208 people (buffet setting) or 232 people (plated meal), depending on the other needs of your event. With an auditorium-style setting the rooms can accommodate up to 350 people. Divided in to smaller rooms, the rooms can accommodate 80-100 persons each in an auditorium setting. The Chattanooga Rooms have a built-in sound system, but they are not equipped with computer technology for presentations. A projector and screen can be set up by contacting Media Resources. For help planning your event, you can find a link to a blank floor plan below the picture.

Chattanooga (“rock rising to a point”), Tennessee (“the place where the river bends”), Hiwassee (“savanna or meadow”), Ocoee (“apricot vines”), Chickamauga (“river of death”), Sequoyah (Native American leader), and Cherokee Rooms are named for the Native American history of this region. Fortwood, Lookout Mountain, Signal Mountain, Walden Ridge, Riverbend, and Coosa room names are also significant for regional history.
