Late Night Study Space Program

Late Night Study Space Program is a pilot program that is coordinated by ASUWT (Associated Students of University of Washington Tacoma) in partnership with Facilities, Campus Safety and Student Engagement. This program’s purpose is to analyze the cost of the opening up the buildings after hours, while providing late night study spaces to students of University of Washington Tacoma.

The Late Night Study Space pilot program provides registered UW Tacoma students access to the classrooms, meeting rooms, and common areas of Cherry Parkes (CP) and McDonald Smith (MDS) for late night study, student collaboration, and team assignment meetings, as follows:
