University of Washington

The University of Washington, commonly referred to as Washington or informally U-Dub, or locally as UW is a public flagship research university based in Seattle, Washington, United States. Founded in 1861, UW is one of the oldest universities on the West Coast and features one of the most highly regarded medical schools in the world.

The university has three campuses: the primary and largest in the University District of Seattle and two others in Tacoma and Bothell. Its operating expenses and research budget for fiscal year 2014–15 is expected to be $6.4 billion. The UW occupies over 500 buildings, with over 20 million gross square footage of space, including the University of Washington Plaza, consisting of the 325-foot (99 m) UW Tower and conference center.

Washington is a member of the Association of American Universities. Its research budget is among the highest in the United States. In athletics, the university competes in the NCAA Division I Pac-12 Conference (Pac-12).

University of Washington station

University of Washington Station will be an underground Sound Transit University Link light rail station near the University of Washington in Seattle. It is scheduled to open along with the rest of the University Link project on March 19, 2016. Sound Transit estimates that there will be 21,500 daily boardings at the station in 2030.

The University of Washington, or UW, Station is deep underground beneath what is now the Husky Stadium parking lot. Its entrance is located adjacent to Husky Stadium, east of Montlake Boulevard between NE Pacific Street and NE Pacific Place. A curving pedestrian bridge connects the station with Rainier Vista on the UW campus. One can access the bridge from just north of the Burke-Gilman Trail in the Rainier Vista, from the Triangle Plaza, and from the station itself.

Construction

The tunneling contract from UW station to Capitol Hill station came in under-budget by $86 million, or nearly 22%, in March 2009. A groundbreaking ceremony for the station was held in February 2009, and initial excavation began shortly thereafter. Construction of the deep slurry walls and excavation of the station box structure took place in 2010 and 2011. Tunneling toward the Capitol Hill station began in 2011 and was completed in 2012. Construction of the UW station was completed in 2015, and revenue service is scheduled to begin in 2016.
