The University of Washington Tacoma has several new partnerships with community businesses and organizations. Partnerships include working with FABLAB, the City of Tacoma and the Y.
The University of Washington Tacoma's Institute of Technology has a new partnership with FABLAB, a workshop that provides 3D printing, laser-cutting, computer controlled tools, and conventional shop tools. Starting this spring, UW Tacoma will offer some classes at FABLAB. The partnership gives students in the Computer Science & Engineering program access to design tools to build almost anything.
Starting this summer, UW Tacoma and the YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties will be breaking ground on what will be a full-service Y on the UW Tacoma campus. The Y will serve UW Tacoma students, faculty and staff, and anyone with a Y membership. The facility will include space to serve students as a recreation center and student union building.
Plans are being made to build a facility that is 55,000 to 70,000 square-feet at South 17th Street and Market, across from UW Tacoma student housing in Court 17.
