Leasing space

Leasing space off-campus

UW Real Estate (UWRE) is responsible for all aspects of leasing off-campus space for University departments including finding, negotiating, drafting, legal, signing, managing tenant improvements, administration, payments and recharging departmental budgets. UWRE continues supporting UW departments in leased space after the lease is signed and the space is occupied. For property management and tenant services questions please contact UWRE Tenant Services Manager, Ben Newton or visit Tenant Services.

To start the leasing process for all types of off-campus space, please complete a Service Request Form. The request will be reviewed by the CPD Intake Manager and the Space Strategy Team and then assigned to UWRE staff for action. If you are a new user and get an error message that says you are an unauthorized user, please contact the Facilities Customer Care Team at
