Governor Christine Gregoire signed into law two bills, senate bill 5127 and senate bill 6074, which enable the University of Washington Bothell to move ahead with construction on its long-anticipated science and academic building to be known as UW 3.


The 74,000-square-foot building will house 11 science labs, several classrooms, gathering space, and a 200-person lecture hall. This space translates into the ability to serve an additional 1,000 students each year. It is the first building to be constructed on the UW Bothell campus in 10 years.
