2024 Annual Report on the University of Washington Master Plan, Seattle Campus

Linked below is the fifth 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 2023.

2024 Annual Report

In this reporting period, the University largely returned to normal operations after the pandemic with most students attending class in person. Many employees still have the option to telecommute several days per week.

During the reporting period, the Interdisciplinary Engineering Building (site C11) was under construction. Three sites were under design: W27 (multi-user building including Center for Advanced Materials and Clean Energy Technologies), E59 (ICA Basketball Performance Center), and C6 (New Haggett Hall). One project, the IMA Pool Expansion, was completed during this period. The University has completed ~124k square feet of its 6M allowed total. The University measured a 16% single occupancy vehicle rate, which is a decline since 2018. The University made a payment under Condition 62 (Traffic Signals) and is in discussion with SDOT about paying for Condition 63 (ITS Improvements). With the selection of Bellwether Housing to develop a 244-unit mixed-income tower, the University is making progress toward its commitment to build affordable housing.

2024-25 University Housing Assistant Program (UHAP)

Through a partnership between the University of Washington (UW) and the Washington State Housing Finance Commission, a select number of newly hired tenure-track assistant professors and early career tenured/tenure-track associate professors may qualify for assistance with their down payment when buying a home.

This program—called the University Housing Assistance Program or UHAP—is intended to support UW recruitment and retention efforts. Program participants are nominated by their dean/chancellor and selected by the provost. Through a second-mortgage loan, eligible borrowers can receive up to 10% of the home’s sale price (or $90,000, whichever is less) which reduces the amount of cash needed for a down payment.

For more information, including eligibility criteria, please contact your current or prospective dean’s/chancellor’s office.
