Housing & Residential Life

About us

Student housing at UW Bothell

The University of Washington Bothell has provided student housing since 2009.  Being able to live and study in one place, enhances a students sense of belonging and academic opprotunities.

UW Bothell, in partnership with Capstone Development, is currently constructing the New Residential Village.  The project will be completed by fall 2024.
