FAQ

Disclaimer: The plugin (Geyser) for connecting Bedrock Edition players to our Java Server is very laggy and does not always work. Sorry for the inconvenience.

What is this?

This is the official server for University of Washington, open to all players to visit! Currently containing a replica of the Seattle Campus and U-District, our server hopes to expand to include the Bothell and Tacoma campuses too. We have many dedicated admins, builders, and non-players helping us grow the server to be a fun platform for UDub students (and visitors alike). We hope you come visit!

Is Minecraft free? If not, how do I buy it?

Minecraft is NOT FREE. To join our online server you must purchase the Minecraft Java Edition. If you do not have one, we recommend getting the Java Edition. You may purchase the game at this site: https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/store/minecraft-java-edition.

After you download the game, make sure it is latest version that you are running.
