I looked all over the country for the right graduate program, and for the price, facilities and education, UW was by far the best. I now understand its ranking at one of the world's top 20 universities, and Seattle is amazing!

The quality of curriculum, the social ambiance of the campus', the reputation of the University, the Alumni, the ROAR of the crowd at games, the City from whence this all sprang. All inimitatble.

My daughter goes to school here and I always park there whenever I drop her off on some days. Beautiful architecture, old and modern, beautiful gardens and trees, a couple of miles north of downtown Seattle. Suzallo library looks like Hogwarts Hall in Harry Potter! Spring is always a treat when the cheery blossoms are in bloom!. One of the... More

We went for a walk around the campus here and it was great. They have some incredible buildings and lovely grounds. For any non-Americans, checking out the sports centre will amaze you! So many huge stadiums and arenas for every sport! If you're looking for a relaxing activity or nice place for a stroll go take a wander.

A sprawling campus intermingled with city streets overburdened by traffic. Best sight is in the fall, to view the foliage and flowers; another is in spring. Fair academia, unresponsive, excessive administration (though very typical of all large institutions: "we want to hear from you" means "only if you agree with us" - no change, no response). Very expensive parking on... More
