Founded in 1891, Seattle University is located on a beautiful campus of more than 50 acres in the dynamic heart of Seattle. The campus boasts an oasis of green in an urban setting, and is an official Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary.

Bellarmine Check-in: Regular check-in begins at 1 p.m. and ends at 11 p.m. However, if you arrive later than 11 p.m., you may make advance arrangements for a late check in by contacting the Conference and Event Services Office between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, or between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Fridays, at email@example.com or 206-296-5620. If you are unexpectedly delayed on the day of your arrival and therefore have not made advance arrangements, you may still go to Bellarmine Hall and use the phone next to the door to call Public Safety (the number will be posted, but it is 206-296-5990). Instructions will also be posted at Bellarmine’s entrance to ensure you are able to check in no matter what time you arrive.
Bellarmine Check-out: All guests must check-out by 10 a.m. All your belongings must be removed from your room, and your key must be returned to the Bellarmine front desk by 10 a.m. on the day of your check out. Limited luggage storage is available behind the desk on a first-request basis. We are sorry, but we cannot store luggage overnight.
Since many interns will be with us for a long stay, we know you might wish to bring a number of your possessions. Large bins will be available for check-out from the Bellarmine front desk to help you move your belongings from a vehicle to your room. Bins must be returned to the front desk.
When you arrive, you will be issued a room key and a Conference Card. Your room key will open your room door and is specifically assigned to you; if you have a roommate, that person will have their own specific key. Please bring your room key to the front desk at check-out in the envelope in which it was provided, or you will be charged a replacement fee of $175.00 (plus tax) for a new lock. If you leave your key in your room at check-out, it will be listed as “lost” and a replacement fee will be issued.
Your Conference Card will open the exterior doors of Bellarmine Hall and give you access to the elevators as well (for security purposes, the elevators can only go to residence floors if a programmed card is used). Your Conference Card will also be programmed with your meal plan funds. Meal hours for the available food service outlets on campus will be displayed in Bellarmine Hall and will be posted online as well. If you lose your card, the replacement fee is $20.00 plus tax. Please notify the staff at Bellarmine Hall immediately if you should lose your card so that building access can be turned off and so that any meal funds you have on your account cannot be used.
Service begins Monday, 6/24/19
Monday - Thursday

Requests for refunds must be received, in writing, by the Seattle University Conference and Event Services office by no later than 21 days prior to your check-in date. (For example, if your check-in date is June 22, 2020, you may not request a refund after June 1, 2020.)
Refunds will be granted less the $100.00 non-refundable deposit, and will be given in the same tender in which they were received. No refunds will be made for requests received after 21 days prior to your check-in date.

The following unfortunately cannot be provided by Seattle University. Therefore, we suggest you bring:
The Seattle University Campus Store has all sorts of supplies, including clothing, food, books, electronics, and personal supplies. Coupons for 15% off are available at the Bellarmine front desk; just ask!
Weather in Seattle is typically very mild. Summer is usually comfortably warm, but Seattle can sometimes be subject to heat waves, for which you should dress accordingly. A fan is provided to each room for those few days when the temperature climbs above the 70s.
Because we are so close to the coastline, it does cool down quite a bit in the evenings, so it is best to be prepared for that as well. It does sometimes rain— the average summer rainfall is 1.1 in/2.8 cm, therefore an umbrella or rain jacket may be of use on occasion.
The sun is usually up rather early (about 5 a.m.) until late (about 9 p.m.). If you have trouble sleeping when it is not fully dark, you may wish to bring an eye mask.
If your family or friends need to reach you in case of an emergency, they may call the front desk (Bellarmine: 206-296-6280) anytime from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., every day, including holidays. Our staff will do our best to locate you immediately during your program.
If an emergency occurs when the desk is not open, please have your family or friends contact the Seattle University Department of Public Safety, which is open at all times:
Emergency Line: (206) 296-5911
Non-Emergency Line: (206) 296-5990
