The Facilities Services office is operating remotely Monday-Friday 7:30am to 4:00pm.
Staff can be contacted by email at facility@uw.edu or by calling 253-692-5700.
We plan to have onsite hours in the near future.


Please order your Covid-19 personal protective equipment (PPE) via our Work Order Request portal, using the Materials List. The preference is to have one order per month per department. While we are doing our very best to keep fully stocked, some items are currently in limited supply, and we appreciate your patience.

Printable posters are also available.


To request the installation of a Plexiglass barrier, first review the University of Washington Guidance for Plexiglass Barriers in the Workplace in Support of COVID-19 Prevention Efforts.

Next, follow the instructions to complete and submit the Plexiglass Barrier Installation Form.

Once the request is assigned, UW Tacoma Facilities Services will provide installation.

Our composting program is off and running! Our initial implementation begins with the compost of paper towels. Signage and identified “green” receptacles have been installed in all academic restrooms.  Paper towels in restrooms are one of the largest wastes produced on our campus. We are excited to offer this opportunity to all users in our support of campus sustainability. Please help us make composting a success at UW Tacoma!
