Campus Study Spaces

Main page content

This webpage contains information for UW Tacoma students about finding space on campus to study. Multiple options are available - read below to determine which is best for you!

The information on this page is for currently enrolled UW Tacoma students who are wanting one-person study space for themselves. This information is NOT for Registered Student Organizations or faculty/staff. While the COVID-19 pandemic is underway, group study is not allowed on campus.

Daily wellness survey is required for students prior coming to campus. During COVID-19 response, UW Tacoma requires that any student who is coming to the UW Tacoma campus for any reason must complete a wellness check-in (attestation) every day you come to campus. Even if you are driving to campus to use WiFi in your car, you need to complete the wellness check-in. Click here to get started.

Parking Lot Study Spaces

UW WiFi is available for cars parked in the angle parking stalls in front of the Mattress Factory (MAT) and the parking stalls on the north side of the Cragle Parking Lot for students to stay in their cars to study (i.e. far end of the Cragle Lot; the south side may not have WiFi signals. If you remain in your car, you do not have to pay for parking.
