Spring 2022 Resources & Opportunities (Vol. 1) – Husky Pawket Guide


Hi Huskies,

I hope you had a restful spring break and that your quarter is off to a good start. Between cherry blossoms and a much-needed increase in sunshine, spring is one of my favorite times on campus. Below is a collection of resources and opportunities to help you make the most of spring quarter.

1. Health and Safety

If you learn you have come into close contact with someone infected with COVID-19, it’s a good idea to get tested, even if you’re vaccinated and don’t feel sick.


You can still pick up free masks at a variety of campus locations.


Staying safe after dark: Husky NightWalk provides a security escort when walking at night on campus, to/from the residential area north of 45th St., and to/from the UW Tower.


IF YOU HAVE COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

If you are currently experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home and  follow the instructions for what to do if you feel sick.

2. Connecting with Community

Registered student organizations (RSOs) are a great way to connect with students who have similar interests and are looking to meet people.


Bloodworks NW Donation Drive: Consider helping our community by giving blood on the UW Seattle campus, May 16-17. Make sure to check the sign-up link for appointments to ensure that there are still available slots!


Calling all makers, artists, and creatives: Share your talents with the UW community and sell your crafts and creations at the Spring Maker’s Fair (May 18). Apply to be a vendor by Apr. 17.


Lessons from Bollywood: See how UW professor Anand Yang uses this popular entertainment to teach colonial Indian history, and check out his top Bollywood picks.


Your home for play: Grab your friends (or meet a new one) for HUB Games tournaments and events! Sign up for a bowling league or pool tournament and don’t miss out on deals and discounts like Free First Mondays and $2 Tuesdays.


The Rec Class Pass offers access to dozens of fun classes you can do with friends, like Circuit Training, Hip Hop Dance, Barre Burn, Gentle Yoga, and Sunrise Cycle.

  • Or sign up for Spring Intramurals like softball, sand volleyball, table tennis, racquetball and more!

EVENTS & OPPORTUNITIES

The UW Seattle Campus Calendar highlights opportunities to get involved around campus and connect with other Huskies.

3. Mental Health Moment

A Sleep Guide for Huskies
Goodnight Huskies is a booklet from UW LiveWell that you can use to help increase your chances of getting a good night’s sleep.


NEED TO TALK?

24/7 consultation from a counselor is available to UW students through My Student Support Program (My SSP).
If you are feeling overwhelmed, concerned about a friend, or you’re not sure what you need but you’d like to talk, My SSP is a great option. My SSP provides same-day, confidential mental health and crisis intervention support, 24/7 and in multiple languages. Connect via phone, online chat, or the My SSP app.
