"Seattle University Campus" Seattle Things to Do Tip by Jefie
Seattle Things to Do: 953 reviews and 1,717 photos
To complete our tour of the First Hill area, we decided to go for a walk around the Seattle University Campus. Though it's nowhere near as big as the University of Washington, Seattle University is the largest independent university in the Pacific Northwest, with over 7,500 students. It was established in 1891, and over the years the university's 48-acre campus has gained recognition for its sustainable environmental management through the creation of energy and water conservation programs, recycling and compost facilities, and pesticide-free grounds. Since we were there during the last week of October when the fall colours were out, the campus was absolutely gorgeous and surprisingly quiet. It made for a really nice change from the more busy pace of downtown Seattle, and it sure is a nice way to walk from First Hill to Capitol Hill.
Address: 901 12th Avenue
Directions: Between First Hill and Capitol Hill
