A message from the Vice President

Denzil Suite, standing
Dr. Denzil J. Suite

Here at the University of Washington, the departments and units within the Division of Student Life are committed to supporting the intellectual, physical and emotional development of all of our students. As a division, we understand that student success is not solely defined by grades. Through clubs and activities, leadership and service opportunities, and a driven network of mentors, students at the UW grow as individuals and learn to invest in their communities.

Led by a passionate, student-focused staff, Student Life serves as a hub for a variety of programs, services, facilities and operations that are all designed to enrich the Husky experience for every student on campus. We are committed to providing students every opportunity to make the most of their time at the UW.

Together we will build upon our shared goal to support the success of our students, both here at the UW and beyond.
