The University of Washington welcomes back Tent City 3 — an organized tent-city community — to its Seattle campus for 90 days during winter quarter 2021. Move-in is scheduled to begin Dec. 19.

The UW previously hosted Tent City 3 in winter 2017, in the same location it will be next quarter: parking lot W35, situated between John M. Wallace Hall and the Fishery Sciences buildings off Northeast Pacific Street.

Tent City 3 will provide safe, secure temporary housing for up to 70 people, while at UW. The number reflects a lower density to allow for social distancing and other COVID-19 precautions.
