HUB Administration

HUB Administration is one of several units within the HUB department.

The HUB is the student union for the University of Washington campus and is an access point to the UW for those who are enrolled, employed, or enjoying a visit. The HUB provides space, services, and programs making it an environment rich in interactions and community engagement. The HUB is a departmental unit within the Division of Student Life under the leadership of Vice President for Student Life, Dr. Denzil J. Suite.

The HUB is short for the Husky Union Building, a name that was officially adopted by our department in 2012. Formerly the department name was Student Activities and Union Facilities or SAUF for short. Please note that we no longer use SAUF in any official capacity. We kindly ask that any campus reference to SAUF be updated to reflect our new departmental name – The HUB.

Lincoln has volunteered regionally and internationally with ACUI for 20 years where he served as Region 14 Director (1997-2000), Board of Trustees (2000-02) and ACUI President (2007-08). In some circles, students refer to him as Miss Manners due to his ever-vigilant education of professional dining etiquette for students. During those rare times that he gets to leave campus, Lincoln sings with Opus 7 Vocal Ensemble and volunteers with Teen Feed.
