NCPC Locations


Alliance UC MercedThe Nicotine and Cannabis Policy Center is based primarily on the UC Merced Campus, but is delighted to be sharing a downtown office with the Alliance Center.  As a direct result of this partnership, we are in the enviable position of being able to meet with community members and host meetings in a convenient downtown location.

We can offer NCPC partners the use of 4 multi-purpose spaces that can be used for meetings, holding focus groups, or conducting research studies and interviews. These spaces can be viewed below or here. To make a reservation visit our reservation page. You can also book a time to tour the spaces by contacting the Operations Manager - Alex Mellor (

The office located at 1026 W 18th Street and has the following facilities:

  • Reception Area
  • Small Office
  • Conference Room
  • Family Room
  • Interview Room
  • Large Meeting Room

All rooms can be reconfigured to suit partner needs. Conveniently located in downtown Merced, the center is easily accessible from Highway 99 or the local Merced bus.
