About HFS

HFS plays an integral role in supporting the UW’s mission by providing safe, convenient and affordable housing as well as programs that promote personal development. Students find a ‘home away from home’ in our residence halls and our single student and family housing apartment communities. We also operate restaurants, espresso bars and markets across campus.


The UW earns 6th straight Green Honor Roll award due in part to HFS' sustainability efforts. See this story and more articles written about HFS in local, regional and national media.

Autumn quarter, HFS residents received a reusable cup to replace the one-time paper cups. The savings (fewer cups going into the compost bins) have been enormous.
