Visit Us

Humanities Academic Services (HAS) is in Padelford Hall on the University of Washington campus in Seattle - you can use the map below to find Padelford's location on campus. We're located on the Plaza Level (PL) of Padelford Hall’s A-wing, and our core advising hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. To learn more about our center amenities for visitors, see here.

The closest entrance for HAS is the A-wing entrance of Padelford Hall: this is the double-door entrance closest to the Hall Health center, across the street from the Husky Union Building. When you enter, use the elevator or stairs to the left and go to the Plaza Level (PL).

The A-wing entrance is the best and easiest building entrance to use if you're looking to find the HAS office.

If you need an ADA accessible entrance, you should use Padelford hall's C-wing entrance: that's the entrance closest to the Intellectual House and residence halls without any stairs. Enter through the C-wing doors on the 1st floor, turn right, and walk along the main corridor until you come to the very end in the A-wing. Use the elevator or stairs near the entrance doors there, go to the Plaza Level, and you’ll find HAS.
