From SEATAC Airport:

1. Taxi is the most expedient way to get to the University of Washington.  A taxi from SEATAC to the UW costs roughly $60 and takes approximately 25 minutes.
2. Another option is Shuttle Express, which runs regular shuttles from the airport to various locations around Seattle, including the UW.  Shuttle Express requires reservations, and the cheapest option is approximately $20.
3. Alternatively, hop on the LINK light rail system, which terminates at Westlake Station in downtown Seattle.  From the same platform, take bus 71, 72, or 73, which stop at NE Campus Parkway (the first stop after the bus crosses the bridge over Portage Bay).  From the bus stop, it is only a short walk to Thomson Hall and the Center for Korea Studies.  Total cost:  $2.75 for LINK, and between $2.00 and $2.50 for the bus depending on route and time of day.  Exact change is required.

From the Main Entrance to Campus:

From the Burke Museum at the main entrance to campus on the corner of NE 45th St. and 17th Ave. NE, take a stroll south down Memorial Way.  Before you get to the roundabout, veer left through the grassy field in front of Denny Hall.  Walk down the steps between Savery and Raitt Halls, straight through the quad, between Miller and Smith Halls, and when you see the statue of Henry Jackson in front of Thomson Hall, you'll know you're there!

From the University Inn

From the corner of 42nd St. and Roosevelt, simply walk east onto campus, through Parrington Lawn and Denny Lawn, and then down the steps between Savery and Raitt Halls.  Go straight through the quad, between Miller and Smith Halls, and the statue of Henry M. Jackson in front of Thomson Hall will let you know you've arrived.
