Air Travel

Seattle-Tacoma International Aiport (SEA) is located less than 20 miles from the UW campus. Depending on traffic, the drive can be 30 to 60 minutes.

All the transportation options are located across from baggage claim on the third and fourth floors of the parking garage. Follow the signage for parking and Link Light Rail.

Ground Transportation

Light rail

The Link light rail between the airport and the UW campus is fast, efficient, and fun, but the UW station is a bit far from U-district hotels. Walking time between the UW station and the center of campus is about 15 minutes. Add another 10 or 15 minutes to walk between campus and hotels.

Ride shares & taxis

Taxis, Lyft and Uber are readily available at the airport.

Shared van service

Shuttle Express provides reasonably priced van service to and from the airport, by reservation.
