When to Make Travel Plans

Sign up for Orientation will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis through your SU Applicant Portal. Space at each session is limited, so please do not make any travel plans until you have signed up for a session and received a confirmation message.   

Lodging

During Summer in Seattle, students stay on campus overnight in Bellarmine Hall, and have the option for an early arrival (staying the night before Day 1 of Orientation) and/or a late departure (departing the day after the session ends). We strongly encourage all students, even those who will be commuting during the academic year, to stay overnight as it's a great way to meet new friends. 

Changing Your Orientation Reservation

If you need to make any changes to your Orientation reservation, including adding early arrival/late departure, adding or removing a guest, and updating any information for either yourself or your guest(s), please contact our office at orientation@seattleu.edu or 206-296-2525 to request changes.

Families

Lodging On-Campus

SU's Conference and Event Services manages a limited amount of on-campus accommodations in Chardin Hall for guests attending Summer in Seattle with their student. This lodging option is available on a first-come, first-served basis for an additional fee. Click here for more information and to make a reservation. If you have questions specifically about this on-campus family lodging option, please send a message to register@seattleu.edu

Lodging Off-Campus

There are dozens of options in downtown Seattle for overnight lodging. All of our suggested hotels are within one mile of the university. Expect a 10-minute drive (~30-minute uphill walk or bus ride) from the hotels nearest the waterfront. Several offer discounts for SU friends and family, so be sure to check with the concierge before booking!

During Orientation, complimentary parking is available in our Broadway and Murphy garages.
