About HFS

HFS plays an integral role in supporting the UW’s mission by providing safe, convenient and affordable housing as well as programs that promote personal development. Students find a ‘home away from home’ in our residence halls and our single student and family housing apartment communities. We also operate restaurants, espresso bars and markets across campus.
