Visited the campus. Probably one of our best experiences. The gentleman at the visitor parking booth was extremely helpful. He directed us where to park and took the time to map out where we wanted to go. The campus is very nice and a great place to walk. We visited as we have high schoolers and always fit in a... More

I haven't walked across this campus since I attended in the 60s. It is a beautiful campus with memories, a lot of interesting people,a lot of demonstrations, a really happening place. Seems a lot quieter these days, ah yes, the times they are a changing. It's really pretty in the autumn with the changing leaves and in the spring when... More

There was nothing much to see here except for a nice view of Mt. Rainier. Came across to this place in search for Thai restaurant.

Hard to believe 29,000 students attend because it feels quaint and much smaller. It's a beautiful campus and the people were very friendly and inviting.

Each time we visit our son, who is a professor in the Chemical Engineering Dept. at UW, a walk somewhere on campus is a must. This recent trip we wanted to see the Conibear Shellhouse where the Washington Huskies crew teams row out of. On display in the dining room on the ceiling hangs the Husky Clipper, a handbuilt, cedarwood... More

I walked around campus for just under an hour. The buildings had a lot of character and I enjoyed checking out the campus.

I have watched many Husky football and basketball games on TV as a fan of the Pac-12 and was excited to see the stadiums in person. The football stadium has to be the most beautiful in the entire country with a view of Lake Union from the stands. The entire University of Washington campus was equally exquisite. I spent a...

My son, currently a college student, wanted to visit UDubb to see the campus "in case" for the grad school. Beautiful campus. Huge! Very green. Loved the Henry Art Gallery, even though some exhibits were under renovation.

Very lovely leafy campus with open vistas and community plazas, venerable old buildings and interesting modern ones, small pockets of wild nature with trails, a view of Mt. Rainier, and (in June) a large rose garden around the fountain. What a great place to go to college, not far from a clean, modern, pretty downtown and varied neighborhoods, in a... More

We walked the campus with our grandson who is a rising Sophmore. It was a Sunday morning so all buildings we closed, but grounds and views of mt rainier were great.
