Applied Mathematics: The Next 50 Years
June 17-21, 2019
University of Washington Seattle Campus


The following information has been compiled for conference participants commuting just a few miles or flying in. If you have questions or need assistance making travel plans, please contact us.

Child Care

The University of Washington maintains a list of child care providers located on or near the UW campus in Seattle to help participants with children identify appropriate resources for their childcare needs.

Ground Transportation

The UW campus is well-served by Seattle Metro Transit buses and light rail. The UW Husky Stadium light rail station provides direct service to and from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in about 50 minutes. Please note that the Husky Station stop is a 10-minute (0.5 mile) walk from central campus, but around a mile away from campus hotels (some of which may offer a shuttle or pickup service from the station).

Seattle is served by taxis (for instance, Yellow Cab, if you're coming from the airport) as well as both Lyft and Uber. Car sharing services such as Car2Go, ReachNow, and ZipCar have a large presence around campus and Puget Sound. The app OneBusAway can help if using public transit.

The free UW Health Sciences shuttle makes WEEKDAY ONLY laps around the University District, including a pickup at UW Tower across the street from the Marriott Residence Inn (also accessible to Graduate Seattle guests about a block to the east), as well as a stop near the Watertown Hotel on Roosevelt Avenue.


For participants traveling from outside the Puget Sound area, please take note of the following hotels within walking distance of the UW campus: Hotel blocks

Dining Options

During lunchtime, most UW students will walk directly off campus onto University Way ("The Ave"), which has a number of restaurants of varying price and quality. University Village also has several restaurant options. Department favorites include:
