Founded in 1861 by a private gift of 10 acres in what is now the heart of downtown Seattle, the UW is one of the oldest public universities on the West Coast.
The UW is a multi-campus university in Seattle, Tacoma and Bothell, as well as a world-class academic medical center.
We have 16 colleges and schools and offer 1,800 undergraduate courses each quarter. We confer more than 12,000 bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral and professional degrees annually.
