Great combination of new and old. Even us tourists got a nice glimpse of what it would be like to study here. The view from the fountain towards Mt Rainier was very photoworthy and the whole campus looked very nice. A nice evening stroll.

This is a very beautiful campus and the architecture is amazing. There's lots to see just walking around and there are several great restaurants in the area. The Henry Art Gallery is definitely worth a visit as is the Suzallo Library.

The University in a very big campus with more than 500 buidlings and most of them are more than 100 years. If you like the old architecture, UW is the place to visit.

Now that light rail is open at the U it's really easy to visit the campus and the U District. It's fun just to walk around and on sunny days... you will have some great views.

Try to go on a day where you're able to see Mount Rainier, absolutely stunning! And even better if the cherry blossoms are blooming!

The University of Washington has a beautiful campus. We visited in June, when the weather is frequently sunny and the visibility is excellent. There is a particularly nice view of Mount Rainier from the Drumheller fountain towards the southeast of the campus. The roses are...More
