Took a walk through the campus, and it was so nice. The trees are gorgeous and fall is the in the air. Great energy with all the students out and about. It's a beautiful campus.

My son took us around the campus to see all the Cherry trees that were in bloom. It was so very beautiful! The campus is nicely laid out and all the people around seem very friendly.

One of the world’s most beautiful university campuses. Located on the banks of a lake, enjoy the beautiful building and the incredible landscaping. Be prepared to walk and enjoy!

One of the top public universities and research institutions in the country. A truly beautiful campus with great views of Mt. Rainer, weather permitting. Don't forget the library, Henry Art Gallery and Burke Museum.

Great campus! I especially loved the variety of fauna. A must visit when the Cherry Blossoms are on show!

On a clear day, the view of Mt Rainer is spectacular. Having the water on two sides of the campus is very special. Definitely worth a stop when the cherry trees are in bloom.

The buildings are magnificent, with designs back to the early 20th century. Be sure to look up! The gardens are beautiful, complete with a medicinal garden. In the Spring, the cherry trees on the quad are spectacular.

The UW Campus has fabulous older buildings; beautiful cherry blossom trees in the Spring and a great view walk toward Drumheller Fountain which provides a spectacular view of Mt. Rainier from the campus; Parking on campus is a bit pricy but worth it.

Huge and nice university. I remember my days of students. Really nice restaurants and shops. The university is huge you will need to walk a lot or take Uber

Ok we're natives and prejudiced but those who downgrade "state" public Universities will miss out on this gem. The medical, nursing, computer science, law and business schools compete with the best and the campus and neighborhood are terrific. Be ready to hike up and down...More

I think so, unless there's an event or construction, it should be open.
