Photo gallery Robots still roll on nearly empty campus

April 17, 2020

With in-person instruction suspended for the rest of spring semester and campus buildings closed except to essential employees, campus is a quiet place these days. But there’s still activity from University Housing food-delivery robots, which serve carryout-only food from Gordon Avenue Market to those authorized student residents who remain living in UW Housing residence halls.

Several food robots roll along a rainy walkway.
