Linked below is the third annual report on physical development under the University of Washington’s Seattle Campus Master Plan as approved by the Seattle City Council in February 2019. The report is structured to respond to reporting requirements found in the City University Agreement (Ordinance 121193), the ordinance approving the Campus Master Plan (Ordinance 125733), and the Conditions of Approval attached to that ordinance. This report covers January through December 2021

2022 Annual Report

In this reporting period, the University began to emerge from pandemic restrictions and resumed mostly in-person classes in the fall. Although operations are slowly returning to normal, not all people have returned to campus on a regular basis and Covid variants continue to affect the return. The University appreciates the ongoing partnership of City of Seattle staff and the sacrifices made throughout the greater community.

With regard to the requirements of the annual report, two sites have been under construction by the University of Washington: S40 (Health Sciences Education Building) and C3 (Founders Hall). Two sites have been under design: W27 (multi-user building including Center for Advanced Materials and Clean Energy Technologies) and C11 (Interdisciplinary Engineering Building). One additional site has been selected for development: E59 (Basketball Training and Health and High Performance Center). One project (ICA Softball Performance Center) has been completed during this period. The University measured a 16.4% single occupancy vehicle rate, which is a decline of 2.3% since 2018. As this is the beginning of a new Master Plan, many Conditions of Approval have not been completed yet.

2021 Annual Report

In this reporting period, the University and the greater community worked to meet the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. University life and operations differed significantly from typical years as this report will show. The University appreciates the partnership of City of Seattle staff and the sacrifices made throughout the greater community.

With regard to the requirements of the annual report, two sites have been under construction by the University of Washington: S40 (Health Sciences Education Building) and C3 (Founders Hall). Two additional sites have been selected for development: W27 (multi-user building including Center for Advanced Materials and Clean Energy Technologies) and C11 (Interdisciplinary Engineering Building). However, no projects under this campus master plan have been completed during this time. The University measured a 7.5% single occupancy vehicle rate, which is a decline of 11.2% since 2018. The significant decline in the single occupancy vehicle rate is due to the majority of students and staff learning or working from home during the pandemic. As this is the beginning of a new Master Plan, most Conditions of Approval have not been completed yet.

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.

2019 Annual Report

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.
