Together, we can build a better world.

The University of Washington has been educating visionary built environment professionals for more than 100 years. Today, our students, faculty, and partners in five disciplines are developing ways to address the urban needs of modern society.

The financial support of alumni and friends enables us to recruit the highest caliber of students and provide them with a forward-thinking and comprehensive student experience, leading to them become professionals and experts grounded in history, theory, culture, craftsmanship, leadership, collaboration and technical skills.

Whether you choose to give to our college-wide funding priorities or wish to make a gift to a specific fund, your gift will help build future communities that exemplify thoughtful, sustainable design and support the physical and social well-being of the places we call home.
