Charter a bus to get to the University of Washington

Founded in 1861, The University of Washington is comprised of 3 campuses and 16 schools. If you’re planning a group trip to the University of Washington, parking options on campus can be limited. Due to the additional possibility of inclement weather, the most convenient way to get around is through a Seattle charter bus company.

About the University of Washington

The University of Washington (UW) is one of the top ranked public universities in the nation. They pride themselves on their sustainability, diversity, and research endeavours. With over 296 research centers, a total of seven Nobel Prizes have been awarded to UW researchers. When you walk onto the University of Washington campus, you’ll immediately feel like you’re in the presence of the legacy of greatness, knowledge, and intellect that pervades every inch of the university. For more than a century and a half, UW has poured energy, resources, and research efforts into environmental stewardship. This begun with their very first general forestry class in 1895. Since then, some of their more notable accomplishments include rescuing Lake Washington, winning awards for sustainable stadium renovations, and being recognized as a Tree Campus by the Arbor Day Foundation for effectively managing their campus trees. When you visit the campus you’ll know what we mean.

Why charter a bus to visit the University of Washington

When organizing a group trip to UW, your best bet is a charter bus, school bus, coach bus, minibus, or Seattle bus rental. Due to the limited parking options and large amount of foot traffic, you’re going to have a much easier time coordinating transportation if your group stays together. The campus is about 643 acres, so with a bus rental, your group can enjoy the convenience of a drop-off and pick up at your desired location without worrying about parking.

About the location and the surrounding area

There are many places around campus to take photos. Outside of the HUB, you’ll find a statue of the UW mascot, Dubs the Husky. Be sure to pet him for good luck! If you’re visiting in the spring, the cherry blossoms on the quad light the environment with their flamboyant color and fragrance. If you’re a Harry Potter fan you’ll want to stop by Suzzallo Library to check out its towering ceilings reminiscent of the architecture so common to JK Rowling’s wizarding world. If you want to do the campus tour, you’ll cover just under one-mile, so be sure to wear your walking shoes. Nearby, you’ll also find the Center for Urban Horticulture, which opened in 1984 as part of the University of Washington Botanic Gardens. The Henry Art Gallery is also close by and features bold contemporary artwork by both established and emerging artists.
