Discovery Hall opened for classes in the fall of 2014. It is home to the UW Bothell School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The $68 million building accommodates more than 1,000 students and will increase the number of STEM graduates in the Puget Sound region. Discovery Hall is the first building to be constructed on the UW Bothell campus in 10 years.
UW Bothell has partnered with Cascadia College to build an Activities and Student Recreation Center – the second major student-led construction project within a three year period. This is a significant step as both institutions continue to support their students in enhancing their campus community while serving the needs of a growing student population.

Surrounding the SSGC are raised beds for demonstration of native plantings and experimental plots, as well as facilities for raising native plants for the ongoing management of the wetlands.
