Student Life

UW Immunology students form a highly collegial and interactive student community of peers in their own entering class, as well as with other immunology classes.  UW Immunology graduate students also have the opportunity to interact with graduate students in other programs during the first two years when courses are held in common.  Ties and relationships forged in graduate school often lead to future professional collaborations.

The University of Washington’s Student Life office offers a wealth of services and resources designed to round out the student experience. Whether it’s housing or recreation you’re seeking, or you want to discuss activities or counseling, the office of Student Life provides a central clearing house for student concerns.
