A Stately Campus

The combination of classic structures and new architecture makes this campus one of the most picturesque that I've ever seen.

My brother-in-law graduated from UW with a pharmacy degree. It is a beautiful campus. The Northwest is the best place to visit or live. You will go farther with a degree in your pocket from U Dub.

Al I have to say it is beautiful. Like Japanese culture of Sakura (Cherry) blossom in Seattle. It is hard to get parking space. Lots of good food/restaurants around University village.

I have had the misfortune of riding an ambulance from PA. to the U. Really that's only one story about the U of W The campus is really well kept and the facilities are all very good.

Lovely campus! Old, gothic, new modern and full with students. Perhaps it's location on Lake Washington, the beautiful grounds and the smiling helpful students that makes it special. This campus makes me feel so good that this hallmark of education has endured and keeps changing to meet the demands of current demands in their curriculum. The cherry blossoms are spectacular...

I was there for an exchange program from the FIUTS, the student organization of the university. Very beautiful university. It's a huge complex and you can't cover it in one day if you really want to see everything. Lots of beautiful solid buildings between a lot of green. You can easily get lost, which is just the charm of it.... More

You do not have to be a student to enjoy the UW. Come and walk around this beautiful campus located outside downtown. Great architecture (make sure to see the Harry Potter library-just ask anyone), beautiful views at a first rate college. Plenty of parking (garage and metered) for a fee of course and some good eats as well. Check the... More

Went on a campus visit and walked around by ourselves afterwards. Campus was large, with some fine buildings, and a nice rose garden plus fountain. Certainly worth a visit.

The UW campus is absolutely gorgeous, especially if you can go when the cherry blossoms are in bloom (generally March-April). The campus is a mix of Gothic and more recent architecture, and the school is a premiere world-class university. You can also see Mt. Rainier from campus on a clear day.
