We welcome you and your family to visit our beautiful campus in the heart of downtown Tacoma. Campus tours are student-led. Guests will experience our unique campus spaces, including the library, University Y Student Center, and classroom buildings that used to be warehouses, furniture factories and grocery stores. Our Campus Ambassadors share their personal experiences in a way that help guests walk away with a greater understanding of the UW Tacoma student experience.
