About US

Founded in 1861 by a private gift of 10 acres in what is now the heart of downtown Seattle, the University of Washington (UW) is one of the oldest public universities on the West Coast. It is deeply committed to upholding the responsibility that comes with that legacy. And being public has always meant being accessible. Anyone can enjoy and be enriched by all the UW has to offer, including world-class libraries, art, music, drama, sports and the highest quality medical care in Washington state. Being public also means being engaged with communities, and through knowledge and discovery we are elevating the quality of lives of others.
