Admitted Student Preview

Plan your visit

Getting to campus

The University of Washington is located in the University District in the city of Seattle. With Light Rail, bus, Uber and Lyft options, there are many ways to get to campus that don't require bringing your car. Review all your options before finalizing your plans.


Because we are unable to cover the cost of parking, we encourage you to consider other options, however, should you decide to drive, we recommend the Central Plaza Garage located on 15th Ave NE and NE 41st St. or Padelford Parking Garage (accessed off Pend Orielle Road off Montlake Blvd NE). The daily parking fee is $15 and can be paid with cash or Visa/Mastercard. We advise paying the flat rate for all day parking.


Dress comfortably and check the forecast! Dress in layers and wear comfortable walking shoes. You will be walking a lot, and you'll want to look up at the sights, not down at your sore feet.


If you have a UW NetID, you may use it to access UW wireless networks.

Guests who need temporary access to UW wifi will be provided with login and password at Check In.
