Items should not be stored in public corridors per Seattle Fire Department Code and University policy. These corridors are designated exit routes. Keep them clear for emergency evacuation and emergency responders.

Hallways that are classified as suite areas may have some variances.

Please contact Building Management at 685-0143 or hsbuild@u.washington.edu if you have any questions.

Abandoned Items

Do not abandon items in the hallways or on the loading docks. Contact Surplus to have these items removed from your department.


Hallways are inspected for improperly stored or abandoned items. All efforts are made to trace these items to faculty, staff or departments.
