Construction will soon begin on a long-awaited $62 million science and academic building. The 74,000-square-foot energy efficient building, known as UW-3, will provide the classroom, science lab and meeting space essential to expanding offerings. UW-3 will increase UW Bothell’s approximately 3,400 (FTE) students up to 4,400 or more.
UW Bothell has also entered into a long-term lease for a 30,000- square-foot building adjacent to campus, which allows an additional 500 (FTE) or more students bringing the total to nearly 5,000 (FTE) students.
Two UW Bothell programs became academic schools. The former business program is now the School of Business, and the former interdisciplinary arts and sciences program is now the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences.
The Sarah Simonds Green Conservatory and the Sports Field and Recreation Complex are two additional projects planned for the UW Bothell campus. The conservatory was made possible through a generous gift from the late Gordon Charles Green.
