UW opens Othello Commons in Southeast Seattle

The University of Washington today opened the doors to Othello-UW Commons, a new multifunctional partnership space in the heart of Southeast Seattle’s Othello neighborhood.

The 2,200-square-foot storefront will be used for community-informed teaching, learning, service and research. The Commons will be a place for the UW and community partners to build knowledge and capacity that supports positive actions to better the city and region.

“As a public university, a key part of the University of Washington is engaging with our communities. With the Commons, we will have incredible new opportunities to engage with the people we serve in South Seattle. I’m excited to see the impact of new spaces and increased interaction between the UW and the Othello community,” said UW President Ana Mari Cauce.
