This policy applies to UW FHL and all UW owned properties under the management of FHL, and is adopted in conformance with Washington Administrative Code 478-136.

Non-Academic Event Policy

FHL sometimes hosts weddings, social gatherings, and other events not directly related to a teaching, research or public service program of the University.  Permission for non-academic events may be granted to current FHL students, faculty, researchers, and staff, or to other applicants provided they have a sponsor who is FHL faculty, research or staff.


The purpose of this policy is to ensure that all University facilities are reserved primarily for educational use including, but not limited to, instruction, research, public assembly, student activities, and recreational activities related to educational use.  Educational use takes priority over non-academic events.

Fees for non-academic events at FHL are based on conference rates as set forth on the FHL website.

Adopted: December, 2016
