Scheduled to open in early 2023, Milgard Hall will be a home for innovation, where business and technology meet. The building will be named Milgard Hall in honor of James A. and Carolyn Milgard and the Gary E. Milgard Family Foundations, longtime supporters of the University of Washington Tacoma.
The 55,000 square-foot Milgard Hall will be located adjacent to the Snoqualmie Library Building and the Prairie Line Trail on a portion of the Cragle Parking Lot. The building will house elements of the Milgard School of Business, laboratory spaces to support the School of Engineering and Technology, expanded space for the Global Innovation and Design Lab, a High Impact Practices teaching space and general classrooms.

Frequently Asked Questions
When will building construction start?
Construction is scheduled to begin in summer 2021.
When will the project be complete and the building open for use?
Milgard Hall is scheduled to be open for campus use in early 2023.
Originally, the building was going to be built next to Court 17. Why was the location changed?
The decision to relocate the project to a site next to the Snoqualmie Library Building along the Prairie Line was made for two reasons. First, the selected location better integrates Milgard Hall into the academic core of campus. Second, the original location is better suited for future development of student life facilities, given its proximity to Court 17 and the University Y.
