If you have a partner or spouse, we would love to get in touch with them. If they will be in the Seattle area during this residency, they will have the option of having their own ID created which will give them access to the Commons, library, and other campus facilities. We will also be having onsite and online gatherings specifically for partners/spouses to be able to connect with other partners/spouses both during the residency and throughout the term.
Please send Ligaya the email address that we can use to be in touch with them.
The Office of Students & Alumni will partner with our underrepresented student group leaders to offer lunch or dinner outings during this residency. We’re aware that all of us have intersecting identities, and you may find yourself identifying with more than one group. That’s why we try to schedule these gatherings at different times to support your participation in multiple groups if desired. More information can be found on the Optional Events & Forms page.
Here’s a list of the groups and their student leaders:
- LGBTIQA+ Students
- Students of Color
- Queer & BIPOC Students
- Access (for students with disabilities, neurodiversity, and chronic pain)
- Fringe (for students who are on the fringes of faith or exploring their spirituality)
- Sage (for students in the second half of life/ returning to school after significant time)
Because the residency meets at the end of the first week of the term, some of your classes will not meet the week of the residency. Specific course start dates can be found in Populi on individual course pages. If you have questions about this, please contact your course professor or assistant instructor.
Breakfast and snacks will be provided, as well as some meals (optional reception on Wednesday evening and hosted dinner on Friday). If you have any food allergies/sensitivities, please let us know by submitting the Food Prep Form located on the Optional Events & Forms page of this site by December 20.
We also recommend checking out our Belltown Dining Guide which contains a list of local restaurants.
