2020 summer guest housing

Begins Sunday, June 21, 2020 and runs through early September. Reserve now!

UW guests, take all the complication out of your Seattle summer stay by booking a room with us on-campus and enjoying competitively priced, modern accommodations and added amenities. Whether you’re staying for a few days or a few weeks, you can choose from hotel-like residence halls or, if you’re more price conscious, traditional dorm living in our legacy halls.

Our summer 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.

If you need group housing for a summer on-campus event or camp, please visit our Conference Accommodations page.


You are eligible to stay in guest housing if you are:

  • 18 years of age or older, and
  • A visiting student, faculty or staff member, or

  • Pursuing research, internship and educational opportunities on-campus or in the greater Seattle area

Sponsorship is mandatory and must be confirmed prior to check-in. Visiting students must present a government-issued ID as well as current college or university identification at check-in.
