UW: Top 10 capital projects

The University of Washington’s 10 biggest projects account for nearly $1.1 billion in spending.

Where will the money go? More than a third — $360 million — is for student housing. Much of the rest is for classroom, office and research construction. Also in the works are a new Burke Museum and a utility plant.

The projects are ranked by budget. All are in planning or construction, or have been completed in the last year.

Left off the list is a $143 million biomedical research building for UW Medicine in South Lake Union. UW will initially lease the building.

The information is from the UW Capital Projects Office.
