UW Tacoma is an urban-serving public university providing access to students in a way that transforms families and communities. We value diversity, and work to bring success to all our students, encouraging our campus community to contribute to the growth and prosperity of our region. We offer career-focused majors in high-demand fields with an emphasis on social responsibility. All our courses are led by faculty who love teaching and care about their students where one-on-one instruction and guidance are the rule, not the exception.
Tacoma is growing, but some parts of our city will never change. Here you belong to a community, a bustling metropolis that feels more like a neighborhood. The feeling’s the same whether you’re walking Pacific Avenue shops, restaurants and museums or riding the link to see a show in the theater district or catching a game at Cheney Stadium. The streets are busy but you’re never far away from adventure. Whether you travel by car or public transportation you’ll find what you’re looking for and more. We’re not big but neither are we small. We are the right size. We have room for more: more entertainment, food, parks, concerts, business, jobs. We have room for you.
