Collaboratory

DePaul’s Collaboratory (C101 on the Concourse level of the DePaul Center) is a shared space where DePaul faculty can creatively collaborate - on research, teaching, course design, and more.

The room has three front-facing monitors, which can be presented to wirelessly (using AppleTV, Chromecast, Miracast, or ClickShare) or via cable. This system allows for faculty to share multiple perspectives simultaneously. The room is also equipped with two high-quality webcams, which allow for remote participants to collaborate more effectively.

To get to C101, take the escalators or stairs down from the ground floor of the DePaul Center (1 East Jackson Blvd.). The Collaboratory is the room directly at the bottom of the escalators.
