The University of Washington remains mostly remote during Spring 2021 quarter, in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As we operate under unusual and changing circumstances, the resources on this page will help you find information and help you may need during Spring quarter at UW.
If you have trouble finding what you’re looking for, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Philosophy Advising. We will do our best to assist you in finding what you need on campus.
Additionally, Washington 211 is a good resource to connect with statewide resources off campus.
