What does it mean to Be Boundless? It’s a spirit. It’s a hunger. It’s a passion for possibility and a daring desire to do. It’s what makes Huskies, well, Huskies.
As a top-ranked research university and an international hub of innovation, the University of Washington turns dreams into realities. From creating medical breakthroughs to devising green energy solutions, students are working boundlessly to make a difference around the globe — and the world is taking notice. This year, the Academic Ranking of World Universities named the UW fourth among public universities worldwide, and Washington Monthly ranked the UW No. 7 in the nation.
At the UW, students have unlimited opportunities to be inspired by leading faculty, surrounded by some of the most stunning scenery in the world. Can’t decide if you want to study history or visual communication design? We’re passionate about the cross-disciplinary approach to learning, which means mixing and matching majors isn’t just doable — it’s encouraged. With more than 400 degree offerings, it’s hard to choose just one. The good news? You don’t have to.

THE HUSKY EXPERIENCE
At the UW, students are driven to uncover all the opportunities that are hallmarks of the Husky experience. Whether you’re spending your spring break volunteering in rural communities from Mattawa to La Push, engineering an EcoCAR with a dozen friends from disciplines all across campus, or researching treatments and cures for everything from Alzheimer’s to Ebola, there are unlimited opportunities to share, learn, discover — and work toward a world of good.
The UW is proud to be a community where students from all backgrounds have access to boundless opportunities. A third of all undergraduates are the first in their families to attend college and a third of Washington undergraduates receive the Husky Promise scholarship, which covers full tuition and standard fees. We’re dedicated to leading our state as a catalyst for the common good, fostering civic and community partnerships for our region — and our world.
