COVID-19 Update


The Office of Public Lectures is committed to doing its part to keep our community safe while also keeping the doors of the UW (virtually) open to you. So, while the times we are facing are certainly challenging, we are thrilled to announce that we will livestream the Monica Lewinsky lecture to all registered attendees.

We hope that, despite the fact we won’t be able to spend time together in the same physical space, through the use of technology and the support of some really smart people, we WILL bring you access to our topnotch programming. And the best part is you get to join us from the comfort of your own homes. Imagine that. No traffic to navigate! No parking to pay for! Easy bathroom access! All the snacks you want to eat!

We are truly grateful to be able to do our part to keep you informed and engaged. Registered attendees please be on the lookout for an email with access information in the days leading up to the event you for which you are registered. Following our traditional public lecture practices, all live-stream lectures will be offered on a one-time basis and will not be re-broadcast.

We will gladly refund any fees to anyone for whom streaming isn’t available. Please email us at to request a refund.
