Staying safe this winter

Throughout the academic year, our goals remain the same: provide a high-quality Husky Experience for every student, support the University of Washington’s vital research and service missions, and continue providing the outstanding medical care that keeps our community healthy.

Information and resources for students and for staff, faculty and other academic personnel are available, and UW Bothell, UW Tacoma and UW Medicine also offer additional resources specific to their communities.

We can save lives and stop COVID-19 if each of us does our part. If you are sick with any illness, you must stay home.

Teaching assistants prepare course materials while wearing face coverings and gloves, and staying at least 6 feet apart.

Resources for students
