McMicken Commons

Tangeman University Center is a building that symbolizes the mixture of traditional and new things here at UC. It officially reopened in its entirety in 2004, after being renovated and expanded, exemplifying both our heritage and our innovation. Today, the building still has a popular food court on the second floor, as well as sit-down style dining in the Mick and Mack Café. Additionally, TUC is home to MainStreet Cinema (our 200-seat movie theatre), a game room, study lounges, quite a bit of meeting space, and the University of Cincinnati Bookstore.

McMicken Commons is one of UC’s “free speech” areas, meaning many interesting speakers have presented on that space. In addition, numerous campus events happen on that very spot, including rallies, the majority of Welcome Week activities, Greek Week, Relay for Life, and so much more.

McMicken Hall is a place with which most UC students are intimately familiar, because it is home to our McMicken College of Arts and Sciences. So, no matter what college you are in, you will probably be taking classes out of A&S for general education requirements.
