UW Intellectual House

Coming by car? The closest UW lot is Padelford Garage (near the UW entrance off Montlake Blvd). From there, take the escalators up to main campus, turn right and walk up Stevens Way. When the road bends up towards the left, you’ll see a wooden building in front of you – this is Intellectual House. The entrance is on the opposite side, so keep walking up Stevens Way until you see a path to the door on your right.
The UW campus is served by numerous regular bus routes from all parts of the surrounding area. A light-rail station on the southeast side of campus provides fast, easy access from central and south Seattle. Visit the UW’s Transportation Services site for more information.

Join New Tech and UW Professional & Continuing Education for a special Diversity & Women in Tech event this month!
It’s no secret, companies with more diversity, whether it’s racial, ethnic, or gender, perform better than those with less. We’re excited to invite you to learn about the difficulties, successes, and benefits of diversity in the tech industry, and what we can all do to ensure opportunities are available for all of us, and make diversity the standard, not the exception.
Join us to discover the people, organizations and ideas that are building inclusion in your Seattle tech community from startups to enterprise companies like Microsoft, ebay, T-Mobile and more. Come enjoy fun, light appetizers and beverages, great people and a panel interview with DEI champions in your community!
