Group Reservations: Summer and Fall 2021

The University of Washington is working closely with public health officials to monitor evolving recommendations for holding events during the COVID-19 outbreak. While our mission is to provide a dynamic event center, our first priority must be to help our guests stay safe and healthy. As a result, HUB Games is limiting capacity for our events to 100 for the summer.  Larger group reservations (100+) can be made for events in October 2021 or later. Please contact hubgames@uw.edu with any questions or concerns.
