Move In Resources

Welcome to your new Husky home

We’re here to connect you and your student with resources and information about moving into campus housing.

Our Housing & Food Services has a dedicated Student Services Office (SSO) to help answer any questions that you and your Husky have about housing, dining plans and more. They can be reached by email (hfsinfo@uw.edu) or phone (206-543-4059), or visit them in person weekdays from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. in Lander Hall.

In addition to the SSO, each residence hall as a Resident Adviser (RA) on duty at night who can provide immediate help and guidance for your Husky when the front desks are not staffed. They can be reached by phone at 206-543-1000, and encourage residents to save this number on their phones.
