The UW Libraries recognizes that many students and researchers on our campus have been affected by ongoing and recent immigration and travel bans. We are a university and library system that is proud to wholeheartedly welcome and support undocumented students of all ethnicities and nationalities. Undocumented students are eligible for state tuition, state benefits, and resources. Below are resources that may be of use to those who are facing legal difficulties with citizenship and movement in and out of the United States. If you are not sure who to contact, a librarian can point you towards further resources. Communication with a UW Librarian is always confidential and we never release any personal information about you to third parties. UW Student Legal Services, as well as community resources below, hold free legal advice and sessions to take advantage of.
In the words of UW President Ana Mari Cauce, "The University of Washington will continue to do everything in its power to support all members of our community. We are proud to be home to students, faculty, and staff from around the world, and we believe strongly in the world as a global community, in the benefits of cultural exchange and the opportunity to learn from people with different backgrounds. Those values are core to our identity and will not change." The university supports all efforts to restore the protections that DACA has provided.
