Child Care Services

Backup & Sick Child Care: UW Medicine is able to offer a limited number of backup child care services provided through Bright Horizons, KinderCare and a limited number of spots at UW Medical Center – Northwest. In addition, we are working to make low-cost options available and will share those with you as soon as possible.

The UW Medicine Care & Share: Interactive platform that allows us to connect people offering and seeking support (child care, carpooling, pet care, etc.). Once a connection is made, the offerer and requester can communicate via phone or email, outside of the Care & Share site.

Free Parking in E01 and E18:

Effective immediately, UW Transportation Services will not be issuing citations to anyone parking in the E01 or E18 parking lots. This is to allow UW faculty or staff to park in these lots in situations where they need to come to campus to support the response to the coronavirus outbreak or to perform other essential functions in support of University operations. These lots are located off of Montlake Boulevard NE, north of the IMA. In E01, which usually requires a card swipe for entry, the gate arms will be raised.

Temporary Employees:

Washington state has removed the restriction that temporary employees can only work 1,050 hours. This will allow us to continue using some temporary employees who may be approaching that ceiling.
