Student Resources in Times of Need

We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic will cause emotional and financial strain on our students throughout spring quarter. We are here to assist you as you navigate this crisis, from adapting to an online learning environment to applying for emergency financial assistance. We have compiled a list of helpful resources, and we encourage you to reach out to our advisors, to your instructors, and to your peers for additional support.

Safety and Legal Resources

  • International Students: The Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) has updated requirements in light of the COVID-19 crisis. Guidance is also available for F1 and J1 visa students.
  • Student Legal Services: Student Legal Services (SLS) is an on-campus law office that provides a safe and confidential space for all UW-Seattle and Bothell students who have legal questions or concerns. They offer free 40-minute consultations on a broad range of issues. Students can also hire them for ongoing representation for a low hourly rate.
  • UW Bias Incident Reporting
  • Safecampus: The UW violence prevention and response team at Safecampus is available to anonymously discuss safety and well-being concerns for yourself or others.
  • Title IX: UW policies prohibiting sex discrimination, sexual harassment, and other forms of sexual misconduct apply to all students and employees—whether the prohibited behaviors happen in person, online, over the phone, or in some other form. Make a report through the UW Title IX office.
