A new 564 area code is being added in Western Washington, which will affect the way you dial local numbers. The 206, 360, 253, 425 and the new 564 area code will require 10-digit dialing after Sept. 15 for campus phones. Make sure to reset your devices to comply with the new norm. New phone lines will be assigned the new 564 area code. Tip: UW phones already support 10-digit dialing.
