How to arrange a custom workshop

To schedule a customized workshop, send an email message to or call (206) 221-5000 (option 4). Please include the topic, audience, number of attendees, date, time, and location of the workshop in your message.

We ask that you reserve a computer classroom for the custom workshop. The classroom should have a machine for everyone who will be attending, and an instructor computer attached to a projector. If you do not have a computer classroom available in your unit or department, you can request an UW-IT classroom (fees might apply).

We require a minimum of six attendees and about two weeks notice to schedule a workshop.
