Teaching and Learning Complex

About this Project

With the completion of this complex, UC Davis gains a hub for student instruction and informal gathering plus the capacity needed to educate our growing student population.

This state-of-the-art, four-story, 101,663 gross square foot facility includes space for approximately 2,000 students throughout its 20+ modern lecture and interactive learning spaces, and multiple indoor and outdoor group study areas. In addition, many of the thoughtfully designed classrooms will feature high-tech display technologies and facilitate research on multiple teaching styles.

Selecting this site helps keep the center of campus active as a hub for student instruction, informal gathering and faculty research all near one of our campus’s major alternative transportation terminals, parking and popular amenities like The Silo, Student Community Center and the planned future development of a Science Hub.

  • Sustainability: A canopy of photovoltaics provides shade to the outdoor stadium seating area while offsetting the building’s energy use.

  • Interdisciplinary Classrooms: Small, medium and large classrooms can each be configured to accommodate a variety of teaching styles.

  • Collaborative Learning Spaces: The TLC includes multiple areas for informal gathering and collaboration complete with white boards, study spaces and post-class discussion nooks.
