2019 Annual Report on the 2003 University of Washington Master Plan, Seattle Campus

Linked below is the University of Washington’s 2003 Seattle Campus Master Plan Annual Report covering the period from January 1 through December 31, 2018. This report is required by the City University Agreement (Ordinance 121193) and is sent to the City Council, CUCAC and SDCI for review.


During this reporting period, the amount of space leased by the University within the University District Northwest Urban Center Village (UDNUCV) area increased slightly by 500 square feet, bringing the total to 307,339. Total leasing in the Primary & Secondary Impact Zones (which includes the UDNUCV) is now 369,974 square feet.

The University continued to support the University District Partnership and the University District Business Improvement area through the voluntary contribution of money and staff time. The University also continued its work through the North of 45th Committee to improve the neighborhoods north of campus. This work included University of Washington Police Department (UWPD) patrols, community meetings, and neighborhood cleanups. The University continued working on the Doorway Project in partnership with community-based non-profits. This project is meant to increase service capacity through student placements in community-based non-profits and, in the long-term, establish more effective pathways to stability and housing for young people experiencing homelessness. In 2018-2019, work included “pop-up services cafés” to engage homeless youth in the neighborhood who are not yet service-connected.
