University of Washington Microsoft

Microsoft is announcing a $10 million donation to help University of Washington’s Computer Science & Engineering department construct a second building on campus. Microsoft’s general counsel and executive vice president of legal and corporate affairs Brad Smith called the UW’s CS department “one of the crown jewels of our local economy” and an “incredible asset for this region and state.”

“The partnership between UW and Microsoft goes back more than 40 years — to the pre-Microsoft days when Bill Gates and Paul Allen were high school students at Lakeside and roamed UW’s computing facilities,” said Ed Lazowska, the department’s Bill & Melinda Gates Chair. “We can’t thank them enough for once again leading the way.”
