Thanks to the generosity of the Greater Seattle Jewish community, Hillel UW has been in the Karen Mayers Gamoran Family Center for Jewish Life modern multi-use building since 2004. This incredible three-story building features a huge auditorium, dining hall with a commercial kosher kitchen, cafe, living room, wide-screen TV, library with printer, Beit Midrash, garden, and basketball court.
Feel free to stop by and check out the entire facility.
