What to Bring

Guests are advised to bring:

  • Alarm clock
  • Lounge wear (appropriate for common living areas)
  • Shower slippers
  • Umbrella and/or raincoat

Seattle weather is generally mild, with temperatures averaging 70–80°F. Heat waves do occur periodically, and campus buildings, including the residence halls, are not air-conditioned. Be prepared for cooler evenings and occasional rain showers.

For those who prefer to bring their own linen and towels, choosing a color other than white helps housekeeping to identify personal items.

The UW is a pedestrian campus; bring comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk.

Residence Halls

Located on campus, residence halls serve as conference housing and provide easy access to campus meeting spaces and services. All rooms are furnished with twin-size beds, desks, bedding, towels, a small fan, soap and drinking cups.

North Campus

The North Campus Conference Desks are located in McMahon Hall (and also serves Haggett Hall guests) and McCarty Hall (also serving Hansee Hall guests).

North Campus—Shared Bath: Conference guests will reside in double- or single-occupancy rooms. These residence halls include single-gender community restrooms, hardwired Internet in the sleeping rooms and easy access to our all-you-care-to-eat dining facility. Wireless Internet access is available in the common areas and dining facilities. North Campus is home to the Husky Union Building's event and dining venues as well as a short walk from the Intermural Activities Building (our world-class fitness center) and Seattle's University Village.

West Campus

The West Campus Conference Desk is located in Lander Hall.

West Campus—Private Bath: Conference guests will reside in double- or single-occupancy rooms with private baths, nightstands, dressers and toilet paper. These residence halls feature wireless Internet and close proximity to the Henry Art Gallery and the Meany Hall for the Performing Arts. West Campus also boasts our full-service restaurant (Cultivate) and campus grocery store (District Market). For off-campus activities, guests have easy access to The Ave, which hosts a number of restaurants, late-night activities and retail establishments.

Residence hall rooms are arranged corridor-style by floor with each floor sharing a large lounge.

Guests from different conferences, both youth and adults, may share the same building, floor and dining room.
