University of Washington Tacoma

UW Tacoma is one of three campuses that make up the University of Washington: the 154-year-old Seattle campus, and the Tacoma and Bothell campuses, both founded in 1990. We offer many of the same educational qualities as our sister universities.


  • At UW Tacoma, students learn in small classes, getting to know their faculty while participating in research and service projects. 
  • First-year students complete an innovative core curriculum, which blends different fields of study into interdisciplinary classes. Courses might mix art and ecology, or business and social science. 
  • The result is a rich learning environment where students are encouraged to challenge themselves.


Within this framework, the Office of Research in collaboration with campus partners aims to:

  • Work with faculty to identify funding opportunities for individual research interests as well as high priority areas as identified by our campus leadership and community partners.
  • Support the full proposal development and submission process
  • Support faculty scholarship and professional development
  • Provide research administration support to Research Centers such as the Center for Urban Waters
  • Provide guidance on the Research Lifecycle to all active faculty researchers and staff across the UW Tacoma campus

Housing services

  • Offers students the opportunity to convenience to live on-campus in a safe and community-based living environment.

Library services

  • The mission of the UW Tacoma Library is to help our students, faculty and staff achieve their goals. 
  • We accomplish this through exceptional services, resources, spaces, and technologies. 

Medical services

  • Provides free counseling and other psychological services to currently enrolled UW Tacoma students, including individual, couple, and group counseling, educational workshops and classroom presentations, support groups, consultation, and referrals.
  • In partnership with Virginia Mason Franciscan Health, provides compassionate, convenient, and affordable healthcare services.

Campus life

  • The 46-acre campus footprint is located on a hillside overlooking the Port of Tacoma and Mount Rainier, on the southern edge of downtown Tacoma, next to museums and the beautifully reconstructed Union Station. 
  • Within walking distance are an array of restaurants, attractions, businesses, shops, parks, museums and historic architecture.

Sports facilities

  • In partnership with YMCA of Pierce & Kitsap Counties, provides recreational and fitness services and equipment to the UW Tacoma and local community. 
  • Also serves as a student center with lounge space, a game room, event and meeting spaces, and the Center for Student Involvement.
