5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many places to rent off campus housing that are MUCH cheaper than the campus housing. Many apartments within a mile or two of campus and even more houses to share with fellow students. More student housing can be found near UPS and is reasonably priced. You do have some places that are way out of a student's budget but you are more than capable of finding a cheaper place to live.

Party Scene: Because it is a commuter school, there are no parties at UWT itself. None. But if you go a few miles up the road you can have a true college party experience at UPS. It's nice because you don't have to be apart of that scene if that's not your scene. If you feel like getting a broader experience you go to UPS and meet people and party if that's what you like to do.

Off-Campus Dining: Most places give you student discounts or a separate menu for students. You can eat at a different place everyday of the week and they will offer you a nice selection. Plenty of coffee shops that are great to just hang out with friends, meet new people, or cram for an upcoming exam.

Administration: The actual school is pretty average with things like drugs on campus and attendance. Depending on the professor you can have strict attendance or more leniency. The housing, however, is much stricter on curfews, drugs, alcohol and noise. I would suggest not living in campus housing just because you have to deal with a lot more administrative influence.

Scholarships: The office that deals with financial aid is very helpful and will sit down with you to explain any questions you have. Financial Aid is an inherently difficult and annoying process they really try to help you break everything down and seem to have students' best interests at heart.

Campus Food: There are a few places to eat downtown (pizza, crepes, burgers) but there isn't any plan through the school. Some of the places are really nice but a bit pricey (Indochine) while others are on the cheaper side (The Harmon).

Campus Housing: I love it here because it gives you the chance to be very independent but with a lot of resources to tap into should you need help. The advising center is filled with friendly, well-informed people who do a wonderful job of guiding you through your college experience. The housing that you find through the school, however, is expensive and fairly strict with rules and curfews. But, you don't have to stay in campus housing and there are many places that offer great housing nearby, not through the school.

Off-Campus Dining: Mostly off campus dining is great and there are a ton of vegan and vegetarian options, however it's all expensive.

4 College Senior

Administration: I think the advisers are very helpful, however it is difficult to talk to someone without booking way in advance.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: It is difficult to receive scholarships unless you have applied for them as a high schooler going into a freshman year.

Campus Food: I often pack my own lunch. However sometimes I walk to Anthem Coffee House for a vegan wrap, so tasty!

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I love the University of Washington Tacoma. They are still renovating parts of the campus, but that just means it gets more beautiful every year.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few places to go but it is expensive and takes to long to get food in between classes

2 College Junior

Campus Food: There are a few Restaurants around campus but they are expensive and take to long to get food in between classes. The only food offered by the school that I know of is a little snack shop.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Not as great as the Seattle campus, but the Tacoma campus does offer job fairs and related events to meet prospect employers.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places to go when you're hungry. The restaurants around campus offers decent meals for students at a fairly average price.

4 College Junior

Administration: I'm not sure how to answer this.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Just file for fafsa on the web then the school will take care of the rest. You have an option of accepting or rejecting certain loans via myuw.edu.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: There are many places within walking distance. If you're not satisfied with those restaurants, you can take the lightrail to the freighthouse square to find more options.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: If you want athletics, go to UW Seattle. We don't have school teams - just student organizations. We have a campus YMCA though, and that's really good.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: It's been really great. Would recommend.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I love the small class sizes. The schedules can be wack, though. Most stuff is great.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Things were pretty easy to get started. The website wasn't super helpful, but the staff was.

5 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I got a scholarship I didn't even apply for! Transfer students were automatically entered, and I got one, which was great.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: There's several restaurants around, but not too much variety. With the lunch break so short, it would be nice to have some actual fast food within walking distance.
