UW Bothell stands with you and we are committed to a safe and welcoming campus. More than anything, we want you and your families to remain safe.

UW Bothell Chancellor Wolf Yeigh echoed President Ana Mari Cauce’s recommendation to our community members from affected countries to avoid international travel at this time. Also, following earlier advisories from United We Dream and the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, we recommend undocumented students that they refrain from any international travel, including for study abroad. In his message to the UW Bothell community, Chancellor Yeigh also referred to the pledge he signed on January 17 reaffirming his commitment to underrepresented and undocumented students.”
