Five years of education at this location cannot give anyone enough time to experience all that is to be seen. Top Destinations 1) Drumheller Fountain and Rainier Vista - sunny days in spring are made EPIC with a view of the fountain and Mt. Rainier in the background. 2) Husky Stadium - the greatest venue in college football. BEAUTIFUL STADIUM.... More

See sorority row, Red Square, the Library, Huskie Stadium, and on clear days, the view of Mt. Rainier. On University Avenue, the UW Bookstore has a great selection of UW gear and books.

We were told University of Washington would be great place to see, but was very much underwhelmed , we are from the Midwest and have many universities that put this to shame such as DePauw University, Indiana University, Norte Dame, and Furman University. Was ok , but only if you have a lot of time on your hands. I love... More

Beautiful campus; 20 minute walk uphill, but shuttle will take you. Get dropped off anywhere on campus within minutes.

I graduated from the UW 31 years ago. I loved it then, but wondered how it would look through the eyes of today's teenager preparing for college. We just completed the prospective student orientation tour with my 17 year old daughter. The campus and programs did not disappoint, even after all these years. The campus is beautiful and although hilly,... More

The Uof W campus is one of the most beautiful to visit in the spring especially with the cherry trees. It is very comfortable and easy to access. After your visit to the campus be sure to visit the UW District shopping center for some great shops. If you like burgers and shakes, I recommend Burgermaster located right next door... More
