Service Pricing

Classroom Services Rate Categories
 Service and Rate Guidelines:

There are 4 primary rate categories for Classroom Services events. Rates vary whether your event is for a course, student group (RSO), or special event and if you are a member of the UW community. Below, you can see our four rate categories and the criteria for determining which rate category for CRS spaces, equipment, and services applies for your course or events.

These rate categories went into effect starting Autumn Quarter 2019.

Please note that the Health Sciences (HS), Foege, and South Campus Center (SCC) buildings are open to the public and rooms are utilized by UW faculty, staff and students in addition to non-UW community members. Due to this, Classroom Services cannot guarantee the condition of the spaces. While all of the spaces in HSB, SCC, and Foege are cleaned daily (M-F), room conditions can vary depending on the level of activity. In particular, for spaces indicated with an asterisk, members of the public are free to pass through these common areas, even during reserved activities. Members of the public are typically respectful of event activities. The following rooms are designated as flexible classrooms and have no default layout (SCC 301, SCC 342, SCC 346, SCC 348, SCC 350, HST 473, HST 530, HST 531). Although rare, it is possible to encounter missing or stolen furniture or equipment in rooms, particularly on the weekends or in the late evenings. If you are hosting an after-hours event, we recommend showing up early to ensure room conditions are satisfactory and to problem-solve, if necessary. If this occurs and your event is significantly impacted, please document the issue(s) via photo or video and send a brief statement of impact to Classroom Services staff will contact impacted parties during regular operational hours.

To ensure the cleanliness of a space, customers can request an area be cleaned prior to an event. To do so, contact UW Custodial Services at A fee will be incurred for special cleaning requests.

General assignment spaces are prioritized for courses. Although rare, it is possible that events in these spaces could be relocated with short notice to accommodate the needs of a UW course. Classroom Services will do everything possible to find a comparable room replacement for events that are relocated.

Checking Room Availability: The University has migrated to using 25Live for space tracking across campus. We are working with the Registrar’s office to fully configure the software, but it is now possible for anyone with a UW NetID to check the availability of specific rooms through 25Live.

You can access 25Live at: and login with your UW NetID.  From there, you can use the location section of the “Quick Search” box or the “Locations” tab to look up a space by room number. Try searching for T479, D209, SOCC 316, or 060.  Events scheduled in those rooms will appear as green boxes with the event names visible. No other details about events or classes are visible beyond time and name.

Please be aware that there is a limit to how far out you can see room availability.  For general assignment spaces like classrooms or lecture halls, you can’t see beyond currently scheduled quarters. For special event spaces, the limit is one year. Once 25Live is fully integrated as a scheduling tool, Instructional Support will provide 25Live training to all users. Stay tuned for more details.
