Return to Husky

Link Light Rail and Metro Transit

Skip the traffic and arrive in style! Link Light Rail is now open at the University Washington and will drop you directly in front of Husky Stadium. To plan your trip via Link Light Rail or Metro visit Trip Planner. Light rail does connect to SeaTac airport.


There are many hotels available close to the University of Washington and in the greater 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.

Depending upon your plans, 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.
