“It was amazing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2009

absolutely beautiful. I visited the campus while seeing other schools on the west cost with my daughter, including stanford, berkeley, and USC, and this campus was much nicer than them all. stunning views of the cascades, the bay, and of Mt. Rainier. The architecture is really something to appreciate.

“Must see! Unbelievable campus.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2009

The U. of Washington campus is awesome. I have been to dozens of major campuses, and this is one of the best. There are beautiful views of mount Rainier in the distance, and the gothic library is unbelievable. From downtown it is a 10 minute drive to campus (park on the street around the edge of campus). I would suggest taking an hour to stroll and take in this excellent campus. If you are looking for a great place to take a morning walk or run, this is a great option. Beware not to go around rush hour (after 4:00) as the traffic near campus can be crazy.

“must go to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2008

it's not easy to find the university, I mean the road of the map just make people confusing, but it's worthy to go and see. It has a big campus and the library is just great. Includingme, I found at least 8 photographers in the libray at the same time. Very beautiful.

Photos will come soon....
