Spring Resources & Opportunities (Volume 1) Husky Pawket Guide

Husky Pawket Guide From the Desk of Dr. Denzil Suite, UW Division of Student Life


Hello Huskies,

I hope your spring quarter is off to a good start! As we head into the last few months of the academic year, I encourage you to take time to explore our beautiful campus. Visit the cherry blossoms in the Quad, stop by the UW Botanic Gardens, rent a canoe at the Waterfront Activities Center or enjoy some of the UW’s other hidden gems such as the Biology Greenhouse, Jacobsen Observatory or Medicinal Herb Garden.

Disability Resources for Students (DRS) works with UW students to ensure equal access to UW academic programs and services. Students should engage DRS as soon as possible once they have identified a barrier and/or need. It can take between 1-5 weeks, sometimes longer, to receive and implement accommodations. Accommodations are determined through an interactive process between both student and DRS staff.
