New Facilities at UW Bothell!

By Molly Ormsby, Adviser, UW Bothell

Science and Academic Building

A few weeks ago UW Bothell was approved to break ground on a science and academic building. The 74,000-square-foot building will house 11 science labs, several classrooms, gathering space, and a 200-person lecture hall. This space translates into the ability to serve an additional 1,000 students each year. It is the first building to be constructed on the UW Bothell campus in 10 years.

Sports Field and Recreation Complex

UW Bothell will soon have a multi-purpose synthetic turf sports field, tennis courts, basketball court and volleyball court for students to enjoy.

Student Housing

For the past three years the student housing has been growing. This year we currently have over 220 students living in Husky Village. Construction on the community center is completed and now students have a great space for shared activities. For 2012-2013 we will be adding 30 more beds and hope to expand the options for housing even more in the next few years.

Sarah Simonds Green Conservatory

This facility includes 1,500 square feet of greenhouse and 1,200 square feet of education and exhibit space for historical displays and interpretive materials. The conservatory will be open to the public and also be used for academic research and teaching.

The SPOT

The SPOT (Students in Partnership for Organized Transformation) is a student-driven center that values collaboration amongst students, faculty, staff, and the community outside of the traditional campus boundaries. Some of the major issues students at SPOT are examining include identifying strategies to effectively retain under-represented students, especially those considered to be most at-risk of dropping or stopping out and providing a space for all students to collaborate on the development of cross-cultural initiatives, programs, and resources.
