Health & Hygiene Services
Opened by the City of Seattle, UHeights hosts a Hygiene Station on the corner of 50th and the Ave. The station provides access to clean running water and restrooms. The station includes two toilets (one ADA accessible) and a hand washing station. Restrooms are cleaned regularly by the city to ensure cleanliness.

We also serve as a host for the City of Seattle's Mobile Shower Station located in the northeast parking lot. The four free stations include showers, sinks, and toilets and are on a 30-minute reservation system and one station is ADA accessible. Stations are monitored and cleaned 24/7.
Seattle Street Sink
We also serve as a site for the Seattle Street Sink, installed right by the bus stop (bus lines to UHeights include bus lines: 45, 73, 79, and 373) in front of our building. This is an inexpensive solution to provide the simple, but critical function of hand washing. Designed by Jeff Hou & team, and sponsored by Real Change.

They partner UW students with the community to further an understanding and create systematic change now and in the careers of those future healthcare providers. Their goal is to empower individuals and the community by facilitating access to free, compassionate, quality health services for homeless and low-income people in the University District.
