The 8 offers outstanding opportunities for classes, workshops and events. Partnering with The 8 helps bring more engagement with UW students to your department or organization by connecting with them where they live. 

Ways to partner with The 8

Creative Events and Gatherings: Whether its creating and building projects in our makerspace, hosting a fun get together in our VR experience room, or hanging out in our recreational billiards and ping-pong gaming area: The 8 has a place for you and your friends to have fun. The 8 also has ample study space, with sweeping views of University Village, and Montlake in the background.

Academic and Learning Partnerships: Supporting the academic mission of the UW is a vital part of our mission. We are interested in partnership possibilities with campus academic departments and colleges that can encompass a large range of student learning possibilities. Our strong partnership with DXARTS and the College of Engineering provide us connections with the arts and sciences departments on campus. Please email Kristin Mauke with any questions or inquiries about how you can get involved. 

Registered Student Organization: The 8 may be the perfect space for your RSO’s next event. Our diverse resources combined with our flexible and fun spaces provide your organization the spark it needs for dynamic membership engagement. Whether it’s work or play, The 8 has an ideal mix of both.
