Plan your visit

Getting to campus

The UW is located in the University District in 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.

Check-in for Transfer Student Preview Day events will begin at 8:30 a.m. in the Husky Union Building (HUB) Lyceum.

Parking

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.

For disability parking and building access information, please ask the Parking Specialist at the gatehouse.

Dress

Dress comfortably and check the forecast — Seattle weather can vary greatly. We recommend you 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.

Hotels

Go to Visit Seattle for a list of hotels in the Seattle area.
