UW Seattle

The largest UW campus is located in central Seattle, about 4 miles north of downtown in the University District. The spacious, tree-studded campus covers 540 acres between Interstate 5 and the western shores of Lake Washington.

Transportation and Parking 

The campus is served by numerous regular bus routes from all parts of the surrounding area. Two light-rail stations  —  one in the University District and another near Husky Stadium  — provide fast, easy access from north, central and south Seattle.

There is ample parking on and around the main campus. You can drive onto campus at various entrances and pay at the gatehouse (credit cards accepted only). Visit the Transportation Services website for more information.
