The primary purpose of UW’s Design Review Board (DRB) is to maximize the functionality and desirable experiential qualities of the Seattle campus, its facilities and setting, as influenced by plans and/or designs of projects with budgets less than $5 million, and/or projects which either individually or cumulatively have temporary or permanent visual and/or functional impacts on the campus setting, including any historic resources. The campus setting is defined for DRB purposes as the campus landscape, plantings, circulation corridors and gathering places, building exteriors, public spaces and rights of way, and significant interior public spaces.


The Design Review Board meets every two weeks on Thursdays from 12:30-2:30 PM on an as-needed basis. Please contact Kristine Kenney at for more information.
