UW Discourages Holiday Travel
Due to the exponential increase in COVID-19 infections in Washington and around the United States, the UW strongly discourages all non-essential travel by students, faculty and staff, including holiday travel.
Winter quarter 2021
Our goal remains the same during this pandemic: provide a high-quality Husky Experience for every student. Information and resources for students, for faculty and for staff are available. Winter quarter will operate like autumn quarter on all three UW campuses: most courses will be taught remotely. Individual study spaces are available on campus with a reservation.
We can save lives and stop COVID-19 if each of us does our part. If you are coming to campus, follow the 3 Ws: Wear a mask, Watch your distance and Wash your hands. If you are sick, you must stay home. Return to this page for updates as new information becomes available.
The University of Washington's coronavirus webpage is also updated frequently as new information is available.

UW Medicine has developed a guide to the COVID-19 vaccine and answers to common questions. At this time the vaccine is being given to those at the highest risk: healthcare workers and people living in long-term care facilities. We do not yet know how or when the vaccine will be distributed to others.
