Over the past century, UW students have united to show the power of participation. From the Yoshino cherry trees in the Quad to the supporting access to mental health resources, the mark of graduating Huskies is evident and everlasting.

The UW Seattle, UW Bothell and UW Tacoma COVID-19 Emergency Student Funds provide unrestricted resources to undergraduate and graduate students who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. You can help bring relief to these students and prevent the disruption of their education.

Your support will make all the difference.


Just for you, we’ve created a few Zoom backgrounds to showcase your purple pride. Add some UW pizzazz to your Zoom calls, or take your own official senior photos at home!
