UW-Bothell offers additional student housing

Due to rapid growth in enrollment and a continued expansion of its student life offerings, the University of Washington, Bothell is offering students more opportunities to live in campus housing.

UW-Bothell opened its student housing program in 2009 with 42 beds. Today, UW-Bothell has 71 beds, and welcomed its newest residents Sept. 25.

Last year, residents resided solely in the Campus View Apartments. This year, UW-Bothell added an additional apartment complex, Chapman Manor. Both complexes are in Bothell, near the campus.

This year’s residents are comprised of 58 freshmen and 13 upper-classmen; of those students, 14 are international and four are from out of state. In addition to those students, there will also be one resident director and four student community advisers that will reside in the student housing facilities.

Each building is a short walk from campus and features large one-bedroom, one-bath units, perfectly sized for two students to a unit. Each unit is furnished and includes parking, as well as utilities (water, electricity, basic cable and Internet), except phone service. There are also a limited number of single-occupancy apartments available, depending on demand.
