Institutional Research


SUDDS (Seattle University Data Delivery System) is the institution's data warehouse, first developed in 2002. SUDDS 2.0 was launched in 2007 with a significantly more robust and flexible platform. In August 2011, SUDDS 2.5 launched with the migration of the warehouse to a new server running Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, a move which also added viewing capability in Firefox  and Safari browsers in addition to Internet Explorer.
SUDDS is only available on campus. If you are off campus and need access, please use VPN or VDI to access SUDDS.
