W Day

Celebrate the UW and keep the purple and gold tradition alive. Join your fellow Huskies on campus, online and in the community for W Day!

The UW was founded on Nov. 4, 1861. In 2011, W Day was established to commemorate the University’s 150th anniversary. Now, the W Day tradition lives on as a campus and community-wide celebration of the UW’s birthday, coinciding with Homecoming.

Share your #WDay experiences online, anytime
