Office of Planning & Budgeting (OPB)
The University of Washington Office of Planning & Budgeting (OPB) supports the UW community in accomplishing its goals through the planning and allocation of financial and physical resources, and by providing analysis and information services to enhance university decision-making, planning and policy formation. For information about the Capital Budget, please see the Office of the University Architect webpage.
The 2016 Legislature passed supplemental operating and capital budgets on March 29, 2016. Please see the OPB brief for a detailed analysis of both budgets.
Now available: 2015-16 estimated annual cost of attendance for 1st year undergraduates, which includes estimated expenses by campus for:
Room and Board
Books, personal, and transportation
Please note, after accounting for grant and scholarship aid, UW students often pay far less than the amounts shown.
