Our Community

UW Tacoma enjoys a close relationship with the South Puget Sound community. From its very beginning, civic-minded leaders have supported the university and helped bring it to fruition. Today this symbiotic partnership results in many connections between UW Tacoma faculty, staff and students working together with government agencies, business groups and non-profit organizations.

Prospective Students

Prospective Students

At UW Tacoma, you connect personally with your professors and community of students in a small-campus environment. A UW degree links you for a lifetime with the benefits of the University of Washington's 150-year international reputation for exemplary teaching and research.

Our small classes offer the opportunity for individual attention and to become involved in research and community projects in an urban environment.



Freshmen take courses as part of a close-knit community of students — a cohort — who take their first-year Core courses together. In the Core curriculum's small learning community, students truly get to know their professors and classmates.

Current Students

Current Students

UW Tacoma is committed to helping students succeed. There are many resources outside the classroom that can help you with everything from study skills and writing papers to creating your own student group and finding a job after graduation.

Welcome to the new UW Tacoma homepage

The University of Washington Tacoma has launched a new homepage this summer as the first step in an overhaul of our entire website.

Over the last year we have spent a lot of time on research and development to build a better site for students, faculty, staff and visitors. We hope the new site is easier to navigate and better highlights the stories and features that make UW Tacoma special.
