Innovation Hall

Innovation Hall is the name for the new (STEM4) academic building to be shared with Cascadia College.  UW Bothell and Cascadia College are partners in the project, extending our distinctive cooperation on our shared campus. The new building represents the best of each institution, their respective missions, and is a true mark of confidence in the commitment to access and excellence.  It will enhance our ability to graduate more students who are well prepared for high-demand jobs in science, technology, engineering and math.

The new building will be located between UW Bothell’s Discovery Hall, home of the School of STEM, and the CC3 Cascadia College building. It's expected to open in the fall of 2023.
