Even though many classes are retaining a remote format for the next several weeks (instructors have flexibility through Jan. 28), the campus remains open. There are some in-person classes, and students are on campus to study and access services. It is wonderful to see you!
Mattress Factory (MAT) 106 is the central hub for students and visitors needing in-person assistance. Main entrances to campus buildings are open 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mon-Fri. Outside those hours you will need your Husky Card to access buildings.
Students can use their Husky Cards to enter the Dawg House Student Lounge in the MAT and find spaces to study, eat, and access remote classes in a private area. Quiet space is also available near MAT 103, MAT 213 and MAT 352. Admissions is continuing to serve prospective students in MAT 251.
The UW Tacoma Library, computer labs, the University Y and reservable study spaces are open, too. Find the location of reservable and non-reservable spaces by using Scout.
Please wipe down tabletops, chairs and other surfaces before and after you use campus spaces. Disinfectant wipes are available at stations throughout campus buildings.

Unfortunately, there are barriers for most graduates who choose not to go to college.
