Seattle weather is generally mild, with temperatures averaging 70–80°F. Heat waves do occur periodically, and campus buildings, including the residence halls, are not air-conditioned. Be prepared for cooler evenings and occasional rain showers.
For those who prefer to bring their own linen and towels, choosing a color other than white or beige helps housekeeping to identify personal items.
The UW is a pedestrian campus; bring comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk.
Located on campus, residence halls serve as conference housing and provide easy access to campus meeting spaces and services. All rooms are furnished with twin-size beds, desks, bedding, towels, a small fan, soap and drinking cups.
