We took the official campus tour. Very fun and informative. Very diverse and inclusive culture and vibe. The architecture and foliage are stunningly beautiful.

They love their football. We went last minute to a game and had a ball. We got tickets out front by a scalper for $20 and LOVED the game. So much enthusiasm and sooo much Purple! Lots of fun and the campus is really beautiful...More

Truly a beautiful campus. Incredible architecture and well laid out with a good flow. Trees and other flora are very inviting. Love the view to Lake Washington from Husky Stadium.

As a former east-coast crew member, the UW shell house was high on my list. Very, very nice. Also, the library was AWESOME as was the view of the mountain over the fountain.

One of the most beautiful campuses in the country, especially in the spring when cherry blossoms are in full bloom. See the Quad, red square and walk Rainier Vista past the fountain to Husky Stadium, the best setting for collage football. GO DAWGS

We visited the university during the cherry tree blossoming. What a fine, sunny day we had. While there, we toured the multi-level grandiose library. I recommend

There is free street parking north of campus on 17th Ave NE and NE 50th St. There is a two hour time limit until 8 pm Mon-Sat. If you don't want to walk far, then park in one of the lots near campus. I recommend the... More
