The Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) is located on the second floor of the Learning and Research Commons (LARC) in the Snoqualmie Building. Registered UW Tacoma students, and current faculty and staff, may use available tables and computer stations in the large open areas for individual and small group study. When the center is full, clients seeking academic assistance have first priority. After hours, the TLC's space becomes open LARC space and is subject to the UW Tacoma Library's policies and procedures.
