Whiteley Scholar Rates

These rates apply to any expenses that are not paid on a UW budget, regardless of a person’s UW affiliation. They are higher than budget rates because the University of Washington adds institutional overhead.

Charges subject to 8.1% Sales Tax.

**All visitors on campus will be charged Dining Dollars, with the exception of family members accompanying researchers/scholars and not using FHL facilities.
