The Ochs Center is located at 739 McCallie Avenue on the southern end of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) campus. The Ochs Center shares a building with UTC's Center for Applied Social Research.

The partnership with UTC goes beyond the sharing of facilities. As adjunct faculty members, David Eichenthal, Eileen Robertson-Rehberg, and Bill Tharp teach in the Master of Public Administration program. Each semester the Ochs Center hires UTC students as interns in order to provide an experiential learning experience. The Ochs Center also collaborates with UTC faculty on research projects of interest.

In 2007 and 2008 the Ochs Center partnered with the Benwood Foundation and UTC to present the George T. Hunter lecture series. The series featured Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, environmentalist Bill McKibben, author Frank McCourt, and the founder of the project for Public Spaces, Fred Kent. The Ochs Center is proud to be a part of this important event that brings outstanding speakers to Chattanooga and encourages community dialogue on current issues.
