The University of Washington: Facilities Services

Car Wash Policy


Fleet Services provides self-serve car wash services for UW vehicles and vehicles owned by UW departments. The facility includes a drive-through car wash and a wash pad for oversize vehicles. Departments are responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of the vehicle.

The car wash is open for use:

  • Tuesday - Friday, 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM

Use of the car wash on Monday is restricted to Fleet Services employees due to the high volume of rental vehicles returned over the weekend.

Off-Site, assigned vehicles, that are not able to utilize the Fleet Services self-serve car wash are authorized 2 car washes a month. The maximum is $8.00 per wash. Save receipts and submit to Fleet Services with a charge detail.

Outside Agency Rentals are NOT authorized to use the credit card for a car wash
