UW News

The University of Washington’s campus again is bustling as students began moving into residence halls on Tuesday and will participate in annual fall activities for incoming undergraduates. About 10,000 students are expected to move into campus housing this week.

“There’s definitely a lot of energy and everyone is excited to be back on campus,” said Andrew Line, a student with the UW Residential Community Student Association.

Provost Mark Richards greeted students near north campus residence halls Tuesday while UW President Ana Mari Cauce welcomed students on Wednesday at the dorms near Denny Field. Move-in days are an all-hands-on-deck effort for UW Housing & Food Services, and dozens of staff and student leaders helped students move into their new homes over the course of the week.

On Sunday, President Cauce and other campus leaders will officially welcome the new class with Convocation, this year held in-person at Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion for the first time since 2019. Immediately following Convocation, students will form a giant ‘W’ on Husky Field.

Fall quarter classes begin on Wednesday, Sept. 28. See a related story from KING 5.
