We are no longer accepting new funding applications for 2023-24 as of May 17, 2024.

Due to severe staffing shortages in our office, Student Activities can only accommodate funding request approvals for on-campus expenditures, such as facility rentals or campus services. This is in effect through Winter and Spring Quarter 2024.

The HUB, in an effort to assist Registered Student Organizations, has a source of funding to help make such activities and events possible.

HUB Event Funds for RSOs

  2. The maximum funding available per academic year is $500 per RSO. The SAO funding limit is $500 per event, so multiple RSOs will not receive separate funding for the same event.

Funding Requirements

To be considered for funding, a Registered Student Organization (RSO) must:

  • Submit a funding request at least three weeks prior to the event.
  • Agree to work with a Student Activities Office (SAO) adviser.
  • Have sufficient time to plan a program.
  • Be in accordance with all applicable HUB, University and state policy and procedures.
  • Support the University’s goal of increasing the sense of community.
  • Must be advertised and open to all members of the University of Washington-Seattle community.
