Welcome home! Before your visit, please review the information below so you know what to expect and can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

Building Policies

Along with our normal Building Access & Use Policies and Community Standards, and as a part of our COVID-19 Prevention Plan and Safe Start requirements, we have implemented additional building policies to ensure the safety of our visitors and staff.

If you are not following building policies for COVID-19 prevention, you may be asked to leave the HUB. The HUB Building Manager on duty has the authority to enforce these policies and deny facility access.

Husky Card

  • Have your Husky Card available at all times. HUB staff may ask you to present your Husky Card.
  • Non-UW guests who do not have a Husky Card may access the building to utilize HUB services and businesses. HUB staff may ask you about your purpose for visiting.

Feeling Sick? Stay Home!


  • Masks are recommended, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Masks should cover your mouth and nose.

Be Respectful

  • Others may be unable to be vaccinated or their medical conditions put them at higher risk of infection.
  • Others may have different comfort levels with physical distance.

During Your Visit

Food and Drink

The Husky Den Food Court is open. Review Housing & Food Services’ website for hours and other dining options on campus.

Prepackaged snacks and drinks are also available at HUB Games (Basement) and the vending machines (Ground Floor behind Starbucks/Southwest Dining).

Water Fountains

Water fountains are available and we encourage you to bring your own bottle and use the water bottle filling station. Water fountains are sanitized and disinfected regularly.

Cleaning & Disinfecting

The HUB follows COVID-19 Enhanced Cleaning and Disinfection Protocols and uses peroxide-based EPA-registered disinfectants. Our daytime custodial team focuses on high-touch surfaces (door knobs/handles, light switches, counter tops, stair handrails, banisters, and elevator controls). Our evening custodial team conducts a building-wide clean each night.
