All CS4HS workshops will be held in the Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Science & Engineering at the UW Seattle campus. Maps of campus and driving directions can be found here. Please note that the provided driving directions lead you to the nearby Central parking garage, not to the building itself, as there is no parking at our building. Please contact us if you require disability parking at a closer lot.

There is about a 10 minute walk from the commuter parking to the CSE building, and about a 15 minute walk from the dorms to the building. If you have limited mobility please contact us about other options.
