The Metro Transit bus from downtown to the U-District is a good option. Depending on traffic, rides are between 10-20 minutes.Get off the bus anywhere on University Way (called "the Ave"). From there, walks to campus locations are about five to ten minutes, mostly not uphill.

New Sound Transit "University Link" link light rail service from downtown Seattle to the University District opens on March 19, 2016.

The Sound Transit link light rail line starts south of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, heads north through downtown Seattle, and beginning March 19th will end at Husky Stadium at the University of Washington (UW). The walk from the University of Washigton station to campus locations (Gowen Hall/East Asia Library, Suzzallo Library, Odegaard Undergrad Library) is uphill, about ten to fifteen minutes.
