Leasing Space Off-Campus

UW Real Estate (UWRE) is responsible for all aspects of leasing off-campus space 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. 

To start the leasing process for all types of off-campus space, complete a Service Request Form. The request will be reviewed by the CPD Intake Manager, Capital & Space Management and then assigned to UWRE staff for action.

UWRE pays rent to landlords and then charges the appropriate UW departmental budget. For more information on accounting matters for leased space, contact:
