UW 150th Timeline

150 years of history in the making…and counting

Over the past 150 years, the University of Washington and the people of Washington state have worked together to create one of the most livable, innovative and vibrant areas of the nation. As we look back on our shared accomplishments, we move forward with excitement about what the next 150 years will bring.

The stories on our timeline chronicle the history of the UW, but there’s more to tell. We invite you to share your memories, which will be considered for inclusion on the UW Timeline.

The UW thanks these sponsors for their generous support of our 150th anniversary.
