Admitted Student Preview

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.

All Admitted Student Preview events will begin in the Husky Union Building (HUB) Ballroom.


We recommend parking in the E18 parking lot, located off Montlake Blvd NE. Please enter the lot off NE Wahkiakum Rd and Walla Walla Rd NE. Parking permits may be purchased at any gatehouse location and are sold via a pay-on-entry system. When you purchase a permit at a gatehouse, you’ll be asked how long you will be on campus, and you will pay for that amount of time in advance. Gatehouse staff accept cash or Visa/MasterCard. The cost to park is $3/hour. For disability parking and building access information please ask the Parking Specialist at the gatehouse.


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.


Will I sign up for classes at Admitted Student Preview?

You will register for classes at an Advising & Orientation session (A&O) during the summer. Once the New Student Enrollment and Orientation Fee is paid online you will be able to sign up for an A&O.

I can visit only on the weekend. What are my options?

Many campus facilities are open starting at 12:00 noon.

Take our self-guided campus tour with your smart phone (from home or on campus).

I can’t attend any of the ASP sessions. What else can my family do to experience the UW?
