University of Washington-Seattle Campus Summary

What makes University of Washington-Seattle Campus unique?

A public, nonprofit institution that was founded in 1861 by Daniel Bagley and Arthur Denny as a research institution. The University of Washington has a total undergraduate enrollment of about 30,000. UW is located in an urban setting with a campus that covers just over 600 acres, and an academic calendar that operates on a quarter system. The University of Washington has a student-to-faculty ratio of 21:1 which translates to large lecture-hall class formats, and smaller, condensed graduate programs. 

Located in Seattle, Washington, The University of Washington is made up of three campuses including the flagship Seattle Campus, along with Bothell and Tacoma campuses. The school is known for its competitive public health, computer engineering, and business schools. The University of Washington has over 300 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in both science and fine arts, which provides a range of opportunities depending on professional interests post-graduation. Washington residents should note that in-state students pay about half what out-of-state students pay for tuition and fees. 

 

The University of Washington is known for its gothic campus architecture and annual cherry blossom festival that draws international acclaim. Beyond academics, The University of Washington’s Husky athletic teams competes in the PAC-12, with an annual football rivalry with Washington State University in the Apple Cup. UW students enjoy a picturesque gothic campus situated just north of bustling downtown Seattle, and within walking distance on the Burke Gilman Trail. Notable alumni include actress Anna Faris, actor Bruce Lee, and soprano saxophonist Kenny G. Notable alumni achievements include the invention of color television by Willard Greer, a 1927 UW graduate.
