Official notice: Rules for residence halls, family apartments under review

Notice is hereby given that a public hearing will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29, in Room 142 of Gerberding Hall, on the UW Seattle campus.  The purpose of the hearing is to allow all interested persons an opportunity to present their views, either orally or in writing, on the proposed amendments to Chapter 478-156 WAC, “Rules for the University of Washington Residence Halls and Family Housing Apartments.”

Amendments to the UW’s rules for student housing are proposed to limit the scope of the rules to the Seattle campus, to update the types of housing now offered to students, and to streamline administrative practices.
