University of Washington Area Apartments for Rent(hide college information)
The jagged, snow-dusted peaks of the Olympic and Cascade Mountains are an impressive backdrop to the diverse city of Seattle, home to the main campus of the University of Washington. UW’s stunning architecture and amazing vistas led it to be named one of the most beautiful college campuses by Travel and Leisure magazine. One of the best views on campus is near the Suzzallo Library, where Mount Rainier stands majestically on the horizon. The campus also features beautiful cherry trees and the Drumheller Fountain.
Founded in 1861, UW is the oldest public university on the West Coast. Denny Hall, the oldest building on campus, was built in 1895. The University of Washington Plaza is the tallest building, a 325-foot-tall skyscraper. Another UW landmark is Husky Stadium, home of the Washington Huskies football team. In addition to Seattle, UW has campuses in Tacoma and Bothell.
