The HUB has partnered with Mazevo to assist customers with reserving space in the building. Using Mazevo allows event hosts the ability to see when each gaming activity (called “rooms” in Mazevo) is available on the day guests are looking to host an event. Hosts can then easily book the activities desired, and even select specific hours for each gaming activity (directions posted in our FAQ’s).

Event hosts must submit a reservation request in Mazevo at www.mymazevo.com and select “HUB Games” as the building/location to book in.
⚠ UW customers simply log in with their UW netid. Off-campus users, without a Mazevo account, must request a Mazevo user login before they can submit a reservation request. This can be done via email to hubgames@uw.edu or via phone at 206.543.5975.
