Student Life

There is plenty of off-campus housing nearby in the University District. For those choosing to live farther away from campus, it is easy to commute by bike or Seattle's Metro bus service.

Central neighborhoods in Seattle are desirable places to live and tend to be more expensive than the more distant and/or suburban locations. The neighborhoods of Capitol HillWallingfordGreenlakeRavenna, Eastlake, Queen Anne, Roosevelt, South Lake Union, and Fremont are all great places to live and are a short bus or bike ride from the University. The farther from the city center you go, the lower prices tend to be. Those looking for the least expensive apartments will find them in the north and south end suburbs, but will have a longer commute.

Advertisements for shared and single-occupancy housing are readily found posted at the University or in local papers. It can be very difficult to find a place during the weeks just prior to and after the beginning of Autumn quarter.
