Local Information

NeuroFutures 2014 was held at the University of Washington in Seattle.

Seattle is surrounded by the Olympic Mountains to the west and the Cascade Mountain range to the east, which includes majestic Mount Rainier southeast of the city. The University of Washington is located about four miles north of downtown Seattle. Convenient public transportation is available to the downtown area and Sea-Tac International Airport.quad

Conference sessions for registrants opened on Tuesday morning in the University of Washington Tower (4333 Brooklyn Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98105). Other portions of the conference took place at Hotel Deca, just across the street from the UW Tower.

All of the venues are within walking distance of each other.


Due to construction on Brooklyn Ave NE between NE 43rd and 45th Streets, which includes closure of 43rd Street between University Way and 12th Ave NE, short term and daily parking options are limited. We suggest using one of the University District Parking Associate Lots (the closest are Lot 2 and Lot 10). Both of these are on Brooklyn Ave NE, just north of Hotel Deca/north of NE 45th Street. Another alternative is to park in the UW Tower Parking Garage W-46, where there are self-serve parking permit machines. Rates are $3/hour up to $15.00/day maximum. For specific driving directions to the UW Tower Garage, link here.

See Sound Transit's construction updates for the University District Station. Below is a map of detour routes around the UW Tower area.
