ASUW will also be operating online until January 31. As we move forward, we will consult with UW Administration, SAO, and the Board of Directors if we need to extend our online operation as well. All ASUW committees, commissions, and Senate are required to meet online during the first week of the quarter. The ASUW suites will not be open to the general public during this time since the HUB is closed and those wishing to meet in person should schedule an appointment in advance with the specific employee. Please find employee hours and contact information at hours.asuw.org.

All ASUW in-person events scheduled to take place in-person will be required to switch virtually or postpone until the second week of the quarter.  Some entities may be utilizing remote conference platforms to engage with constituents. For information on specific events and meetings, please reach out to the particular entity or organizer. Contact information may be found at asuw.org/contact-us.
