This is the University of Washington: a stunning campus in the heart of an energetic, forward-thinking city. Our students are dreamers and doers, and together we tackle big issues with curiosity, compassion and optimism. As a public university, our mission goes far beyond our campus — and you can help take us in new directions. Come here to explore, create, discover and be part of something bigger.

Because what you care about can change the world.
