Travel to Campus
This First Year Programs webpage provides information about how to get to campus.
There are many fine hotels surrounding the University of Washington, as well as in the general Seattle area.
Please be aware that many of the University’s schools, colleges, and departments have their own graduation events. These events generally (but not always) take place on or near the UW campus during the week before commencement. You can obtain information about these events on our School, Dept., Other Events page.
Depending upon what events you are attending on or off campus and any other plans you might have, you may want to book lodging near campus or closer to downtown. The downtown core is approximately 7-10 miles from campus. The driving time is about 15-20 minutes.
