Computing workshops scheduled by instructors are offered quarterly at no charge.
Walk-in workshops are designed and taught by our student instructors and are offered in a fun, casual atmosphere. To attend, you will need a current student, staff or faculty UW NetID. Registration is optional. However, if a workshop fills, seating preference will be given to registered participants.
Custom workshops are available upon request. Custom workshops for Canvas, Tegrity and Catalyst are offered free of charge. Other custom workshops are free only to courses in the UW Time Schedule and to student groups.
Interested faculty and staff groups may arrange a custom workshop for a fee.
For paid custom workshop prices, see the “price” section below.
Many of the walk-in workshops have online curriculum anyone can use and review online at any time. Please go to our workshops page and select the workshop you attended or are interested in to view the online curriculum. There is an “online curriculum” section on the right of this page, which includes curriculum for non-current workshops.

UW-IT is retiring the UW Microsoft IT Academy (ITA) service on September 15, 2014. Current UW ITA users will retain access through November 15, 2014.
UW students, faculty and staff can access the Microsoft IT Academy’s digital courses and certifications through libraries across the state of Washington instead of the smaller subset UW could offer. Below are links to a few local libraries now offering ITA access using your library card.
Walk-in workshop classroom instruction is provided in Mary Gates Hall and Odegaard Undergraduate Library. Schedules vary, but classroom instruction generally is offered afternoons, Monday through Friday, with some weekend offerings. Most courses require current student, staff or faculty UW NetID.
Mobile & web app that helps students find campus study spaces
SpaceScout™ allows any student with an iOS device or access to a Web browser to quickly and easily locate campus study spaces that meet their needs. Students can locate spaces by skimming a map, or by specifying search criteria: type of space, capacity, hours available, whether the space can be reserved, location, noise level, lighting, learning resources (whiteboard, etc.), and proximity to food/coffee. Photos of each space help students choose exactly what they’re looking for. For popular computing labs, SpaceScout also displays real-time information about computer availability. Students may rate and review spaces, and invite study partners to a space.
The app currently includes over 200 spaces on the UW-Seattle campus and 70 spaces at UW-Tacoma. New spaces are constantly being added, and will include the UW-Bothell campuses in the future. With building renovations, remodels, and upgrades continually changing the landscape of learning resources on campus, SpaceScout provides a single place to go for up-to-date information on spaces that can help students accomplish their work.
Service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Availability of study spaces varies and is listed in the app.
This service is included in the Technology Recharge Fee.
Service Level Description:
This service aims to be operationally ready 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, having zero downtime or data loss, redundant fabrics, and no single points of failure.
