Seattle University’s campus is in the heart of a vibrant, world-class city full of possibilities and rich in opportunities.
SU students take advantage of the location and the university’s close proximity to major corporations, hospitals, biotech companies and the university’s many other partnerships throughout the community as they prepare for their careers.
Seattle is also a great place to have fun. From campus, it’s a short jaunt to downtown, Pioneer Square, the famous Pike Place Market, the Olympic Sculpture Park, Space Needle, Colman Dock for ferry treks across Puget Sound, CenturyLink Field—home to the Seahawks and Sounders FC soccer—and Safeco Field, where the Seattle Mariners play ball.
Add to that, SU Redhawks Division I basketball at KeyArena at Seattle Center, great hills for hiking, slopes for skiing and snowshoeing—all within an hour’s drive. You can engage in water sports in nearby Puget Sound and Lake Union and soak up arts and culture with live music, galleries, cinema, theater, shopping, food and coffee all within walking distance of campus. Explore some of the region’s most culturally and ethnically diverse neighborhoods nearby, including the Central District, Little Ethiopia, Little Saigon and the International District.
Seattle the city and Seattle the university are lively laboratories for learning—both inspirational and innovative. Students take to the city’s streets, fields, forests, waterways, museums and more as part of their educational experience. Consider the prospects of an internship at Microsoft, Boeing, Costco, Starbucks, Eddie Bauer, REI, PACCAR, Nordstrom, UPS, the Gates Foundation and many other organizations with global impact.
Discover Seattle, both the dynamic city and the remarkable university with the same name. Both offer a range of possibilities to become a leader in your profession and in life.
