First Year Programs

If classes last an hour, how much time do I have to get to the next class?

Actually, the University "hour" is 50 minutes, and you have 10 minutes to get to the next class if you're taking courses one right after another. Some classes meet for longer than 50 minutes, though - especially labs. And some classes meet for two long sessions each week instead of five hour-long sessions.

You can locate the distance between your classes by calculating the walking time on google maps. Just enter the building name, and "UW" and the building will appear.  

If you have a walking time longer than 10 minutes, communicate (email or canvas) with your professor before the quarter begins. Express to them that you might be a few minutes late to class due to the walk time.
