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 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 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.


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


The event is full, can I still come?

If we’ve reached maximum capacity for our opening session and parent/student panels, you are still welcome to “walk on” beginning at 11:15 a.m. Check-in at the “Ask a Counselor” table on the first floor of the Husky Union Building (HUB) for a packet, map and days schedule.

May I bring more than two guests?

You are welcome to bring more than two guests to the event. However, seating in breakout sessions is limited, so we ask that you limit your guests to two during those times.

I require an accommodation. Who do I contact?

Please email the Campus Visit Program at

Is internet access available?

Guests who need temporary access will be provided with a login and password at check in.
