Seattle University is consistently ranked among the top 10 universities in the West by U.S. News & World Report and included in The Princeton Review's Best Colleges guide.

Located in the heart of Seattle, the beautiful urban campus houses a community of over 7,400 students, with more than 850 international students from 51 countries around the world.
