Guest housing is available to visiting undergraduate and graduate students, scholars, faculty and staff members, University of Washington alumni, and individuals pursuing research and educational opportunities.

The UW Seattle Campus is located in the vibrant University District, a short bus or light rail ride away from downtown.
