Founded in 1990, the University of Washington Bothell was created to bring the world-renowned University of Washington traditions of academic excellence to residents of the growing Puget Sound region. While we primarily serve citizens in North King and Snohomish counties, our student body is composed of a dynamic and diverse group of students from around the state, the nation and the world.
UW Bothell holds the student-faculty relationship to be paramount. We provide access to excellence in higher education through innovative and creative curricula, interdisciplinary teaching and research, and a dynamic community of multicultural learning.
