Join the Discord

Who we are...

The UPL is a social club with a proud 40-year legacy. We invite you to visit us whenever the room is open, whether to relax between classes, enjoy lunch, or simply unwind. We’d love to welcome you!

Who we are NOT...

The UPL itself doesn't run projects. Rather, it's a space where members work on their own initiatives and connect with fellow UW students. Check out our blog to see what UPL'ers are up to!

Where are we...

Visit us in Computer Sciences Room 1341, the triangle-shaped room on the first floor. We’re thrilled to announce that in Fall 2025, we’ll have a dedicated space in Morgridge Hall 🎉.
