“Beautiful campus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

We took the bus to campus, walked around campus (great view of Mt. Ranier), and explored the business area before taking the bus back to Ballard. There is a museum that looked interesting but we were too late in the day to take advantage.

“Beautiful to visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

The U of W campus is absolutely beautiful. So many classic old buildings, but also some that were built in the concrete era of the 60's and 70's.....but what large academic campus doesn't have those budget friendly eyesores? The Quad is a must see in the Spring when the cherry trees are in full bloom. It will take your beath away. Enjoy!

“A City Jewel”

UW has to be one of the loveliest in city institutions of higher learning. Springtime is best with all the plum/cherry trees in bloom.

Large, beautiful campus located in Seattle, WA. Worth visiting to see the architecture and various areas which are interesting outside of the buildings.
