The University of Washington will welcome back Tent City 3 — an organized tent-city community — to its Seattle campus for 90 days during winter quarter 2023. Move-in is scheduled to begin Dec. 17, 2022.

The UW previously hosted Tent City 3 in winter 2017 and winter 2021 in parking lot W35, situated between John M. Wallace Hall and the Fishery Sciences buildings off Northeast Pacific Street. This year’s site will be parking lot E21, located just north of the Waterfront Activities Center, by Husky Stadium.

Tent City 3 will provide safe, secure temporary housing for up to 100 people, while at UW.
