On February 16/17, Seattle U and U of W students danced for 16 hours and raised $70,209 for Seattle Children's Hospital Uncompensated Care Fund. Congratulations to these dedicated students! Snowy days couldn't keep them from doing this #forthekids!

International dinner

The annual International Dinner was held recently allowing our international students to share a bit about their home country and cultures. It is always a highlight of the year with students preparing delicious food and doing some of the entertaining.

Housing selection for 2019-20

Seattle U has a two year on-campus housing requirement if students are not living at home. The housing selection timeline and other important information for 2019-20 is available here. Encourage your student to pay attention to this information if they will be living on campus next year.

student clubs

Student Clubs help create a vibrant campus life for our students. Has your student found a club or two to join? We have over 150 clubs on campus based on majors, career interests, cultural identity, social justice, volunteering, recreational interests and more! If your student is looking for a way to connect to peers with mutual interests, encourage them to join an SU club!
