The Collaborative Workspace was designed for Evans School students as a convenient location to work on group projects. Group projects are an essential part of the coursework and learning experience at the Evans School. The Collaborative Workspace is located in the student lounge in Parrington B08, accessible down the ramp on the outside of the southwest side of Parrington, and is comprised of three separate work stations that each contain a large monitor, long table, chairs, and whiteboards.

Availability and Security

An Evans School student must reserve the workspace and be present during workspace use.

The Collaborative Workspace is open 24 hours. Students must enter the code provided during orientation to enter the student lounge. 

See current Collaborative Workspace availability.

To protect the equipment in the Collaborative Workspace, no food is allowed. Drinks are allowed only in secured containers (travel mugs, etc.). Unsecured drink containers (disposable cups, etc.) are prohibited.

The use of cell phones is prohibited in the Collaborative Workspace.

Reservations and Drop-In Use

All three spaces are available for advance reservation. A space can be used on a drop-in basis if it has not been reserved online and is not currently in use.

You can see current Collaborative Workspace availability and request reservations online. Reservations cannot be made more than two weeks in advance and reserved times cannot be longer than four hours in one day.

Requests can be made for any time of day; however, reservations will only be approved during business hours (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday). Reservations will always be entered in the order they are received.

NOTE: To maintain exclusive access for Evans School students, we need to be able to prove the need for this space by providing accurate usage statistics to the University of Washington. Please log all hours of drop-in and extended use to ensure this space is available to Evans School students in future years.

Drop-in use by a group must be registered after the fact using the online form.

For both reserved usage and drop-in use, if there is no wait for the space, you may go over the four-hour limit. If you extend use of a reserved space beyond four hours, please use the online form so we can track usage.
