General Directions to the University District and SMEA
From I-5, going north or south, take the NE 45th Street exit (#169). Head east on NE 45th Street.
To get to SMEA, turn right (south) on Brooklyn Ave NE. Go the end, we are in the last building on the right; the Marine Studies Building.
From Sea-Tac airport you can take the lightrail to Westlake Station (approx. $2.75). From that stop take the #71 or #73 buses Northbound (approx. $2.50) and exit at NE Campus Pkwy & 12th Ave. Go west a half block to Brooklyn Ave. NE and make a left. SMEA will be 3 blocks down on the right in the Marine Studies Building.
3707 Brooklyn Ave NE – on the corner of Brooklyn Ave NE and NE Boat St. (Lake Union is across the street). Look for the concrete building with a stained glass ‘seascape’ on the front. Go straight through the lobby into SMEA; Our Graduate Program Advisor is located in room 107.
Parking can be difficult in the University District. There are meters on NE Boat St. just south of our building; parking is $3.00/hr with a 2 hour maximum – bring lots of quarters or use a debit/credit card. Two hours may not be long enough if you are planning to attend a class. The link to visitor parking at the UW is here. The spaces for visitors usually fill up early. There are a couple of private lots in the general area, the closest is about a block west of SMEA on Boat Street.
