HSB/Foege Exterior Door Unlocks for After-hour Events

If your event is after-hours, you must arrange for the exterior building doors to be unlocked by replying to your reservation confirmation or by indicating that your event falls outside of building hours in your roomQ request. This may not be necessary if all attendees have the appropriate building access cards. Click here to see the locations and door codes for the exterior doors that can be unlocked for your event.

Please note that the exterior door unlocks procedures are different in the South Campus Center. Click here for more information.

The following rooms have active phone lines: BB1404, D209, I132 (no phones), K069, RR134, T435, T439, T625, T639, T733, T739, T747, S060. The phones installed in these rooms are single line analog phones that do not have speaker phone capability. UPDATE It has recently come to our attention that UWMC Teleservices speakerphones do not work in our spaces.

Pricing: $80 per day and a $50 for delivery and setup. Avidex is an off campus vender so UW Budget Numbers will not work for payment. For more information visit their website.

Course casting is available in T435, T439, and T739.

UPDATE Audio podcasting, a service managed by Classroom Technology and Events in Kane Hall, is no longer available in the Health Sciences lecture halls.

Installed Mac computers with Windows boot-up are now available in T435 and T439; you are now able to load your presentation from your thumb-drive onto the installed computers for your convenience. However, if you prefer to use your own laptop instead of the installed computer, you can continue use the VGA cable. For more information and/or for troubleshooting assistance, please contact Classroom Services at 206-543-6729 or hsbav@uw.edu.

HSB/Foege Special Event Containers

Food is not permitted inside any of our rooms in the Health Sciences, UWMC, and Foege-S buildings. If your event will have food, you must reserve a space where the catering can be set up outside the room. Rooms where this is allowed are S060, A420, D209, K069, T435, T439, T625, T635, T639, T733, T739, T747, and I132. You are also required to request special event waste, compost, and/or recycling containers from Classroom Services, since the existing waste containers found throughout the building may not be used for your event. To reserve special event containers, you will need to indicate this on your roomQ request. If you already have a confirmed reservation and still need to request special event containers, please send your request to Classroom Services at hsbav@uw.edu. There is a charge for these special event containers. Contact Classroom Services directly for specific pricing.
