In the Heart of a World-class City

    Seattle is more than an international hub of innovation and global impact with companies and organizations such as Boeing, Amazon, Costco, the Gates Foundation, PATH, Microsoft and Starbucks.

    Take in the breathtaking skyline at the top of the iconic Space Needle or the Seattle Great Wheel, a 175-foot Ferris wheel on Seattle's waterfront. Catch a sightseeing ferry ride across Puget Sound or wander through Pike Place Market, the Olympic Sculpture Park or the Museum of History and Industry, all a short distance from campus.

    Just a quick walk from SU you'll find music, coffee houses and restaurants galore in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. People watch at a café, experience an author reading in a quirky bookstore or browse through one of the area's many thrift shops.
