We went to visit the U because one of my daughters had read about their library being so beautiful. It was really easy to get to via the light rail system and we enjoyed our walk around the campus. The library is indeed beautiful and the reading room in the front, just up the staircase from the entrance is like... More

Every month on campus is a different garden experience. There are glades to explore, gardens to sniff and burst of floral color to just sit and enjoy. And it is open to the public free of change and on several bus routes. It is OUR campus. Come and enjoy!

The library building is a must visit. Campus is very well spread out and located just far enough from the downtown area to be its own world.

This is a wonderful campus in many ways. It's easy to just stroll or bike around the campus, finding all the "secret" little places that make it special. Lots of exhibits to be seen as well.

My husband, teenage son and I toured the campus on our own. The view of Mt. Rainier was as good as advertised. The folks on campus were friendly and helpful!

Came for a tour that from start to finish was amazing. The UW transportation services was a tremendous resource for helping with all of our transportation needs. The campus is gorgeous and the tour was awesome which concluded at the HUB (a great place for students) for a very informative freshman session.

The campus of this school is in a nice neighborhood. It is setup in attractive manner. This must be busy during the schol year as we were there in non-school year time.

We were here to bring our son to a basketball camp. The campus is beautiful and reminiscent of an east coast campus steeped in history and architecture. If you visit the reading room, you truly feel as if you just walked into a Harry Potter film. The Hub has several food choices, and it's easy to locate. You can also... More

We visited the campus of UW for a picnic and it was enjoyable! Kids and older folks go there to sit and enjoy the scenery or play on the grounds, nice.
