This campus is spectacular! It is a great blend of old architecture and new age technology! We spent 2 hours walking around taking pictures! A must see in the fall...especially the Fountain and the Mountain!

The lay out of the campus on Lake Washington is stunning. The elevation changes will have you catching your breath but offer outstanding views from all parts of the campus. Great college if you can get in!

Not really much to do at this place aside from walking around like you are inside a park. However it is a landmark in washington and that is why is a must to see this

We visited the campus after a few locals made the suggestion. It is a picturesque campus with varied architecture,and beautiful landscaping. It will only take a short time, but it is well worth the drive.

Came to visit my nephew who just started at UDubb. Such a beautiful campus. Their main library looks like a scene right out of Hogwarts in Harry Potter.

We felt 25 years younger cruising around the campus. Interesting shops, restaurants and theaters are everywhere! Good inexpensive food at most places, catering to student budgets. Very diverse, super cool.

This may not be relevant to most people's travel plans, but UW has a wonderful, spacious campus, history, many interesting buildings and University Village is a good place for shopping.

Possibly my favorite college campus I've been on. It's got great neo-gothic architecture for some buildings and more modern stuff for others. The paths range from wide, flat, paved walkways to small beaten paths through the wooded areas. Great view of Rainier from the big fountain/field area right in the center of campus. Better if you know someone who goes... More

We visit this beautiful college campus frequently with several alumni family members and child as a current student. This top Northwest school is always expanding and updating their facilities. We have been pleased with the addition and replacement of their student housing. All old dorms on NE Campus Parkway have been replaced with modern and spacious dorms and apartment complexes.... More

U-Dub!! Great campus. Took a tour thinking my High School Senior may go there. The tour was very informative. If you want a big school there probs isn't anything better in WA state.
