TEMPORARY ACCOMMODATION

Student Host
With three weeks notice, we can usually arrange a 1-2 night stay with a student in the program for a visitor travelling alone. However, student accommodation is not guaranteed, especially for later Visit Days requests. It should be kept in mind that the student host should not be expected to provide meals or transportation, although they may do so on occasion. Also the quality of accommodation may vary; for example, you may be offered a place to sleep on the sofa in the living room. On the other hand, staying with a student can provide a good opportunity to learn about the program from a student's point of view.

Hotels/Motels
When making your reservation make sure to ask if they offer a discount to new UW students. Be aware that some hotels charge a higher rate during peak season. Although the exact starting and ending dates vary, peak season is usually mid-May through September.

Most hotels require a credit card number as a guarantee for reservations. The following information is needed: Credit card company, number and expiration date as well as your name as it appears on the credit card. You will be charged for an unused room if you do not cancel in advance. Ask the hotel for their cancellation deadline.

Directions:  Bus directions are below. Schedules can be found online at King County Metro. For driving directions refer to the hotel web pages. To reach the Department refer to the directions link under each hotel/motel in this document and on Visit the Department. Print Campus and Health Sciences maps from the Visit the Department site before you leave home.
