CSE2 will provide the space to double our annual degree production, educating more of Washington's students for Washington's high-impact jobs. It will provide new instructional and collaborative spaces, expanded research labs, a 250-seat auditorium, and a flexible event space that will complement the existing Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Science & Engineering on the University of Washington's Seattle campus. Together, CSE2 and the Allen Center will enable us to provide an unparalleled education and research experience to students, and to engage in even more robust collaborations across the campus, the region, and the globe.

UW CSE is raising $110 million to fund the project through a combination of public investment and private philanthropy. In January 2017 the University of Washington Board of Regents authorized the start of construction, although fundraising is not yet complete. We expect to open CSE2 to faculty, students and the community in January 2019. Learn more in our Campaign for UW CSE case statement, and partner with us to advance the future of computer science for the benefit of Washington and the world by supporting CSE2!
