Seattle Pacific University

Founded in Oregon by Methodists, Seattle Pacific University has grown out of its humble, stilted beginnings to be one of the most respected institutions of the liberal arts and sciences in Washington. It offers just over a hundred undergraduate major and minors, and 15 post graduate degrees.

Rock, Grunge and Martial Arts

Seattle is well known worldwide as the birthplace of grunge, with Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains all coming out of the city. Seattle was the birthplace of Jimi Hendrix and is the final resting place of Brandon Lee and Bruce Lee.

It is also one of the US's most educated areas (25% have at least a bachelor's degree), as well as one of the richest areas in the country. Seattle was ranked 17th out of 363 metro areas in the States based on per capita income.

Unsurprisingly, many of the city's annual events are music based, with an annual summer blues festival, the Slack Keys Festival, Artopia, the Bainsbridge Island Bluegrass Festival, and South Lake Block Party in town throughout the year.

Strap on Your Skates in Seattle

Seattle as a whole is very walkable. And the area around Seattle Pacific University is ranked close to a walker's paradise, with a score of 82 out of 100. Bookstores, grocery stores and restaurants are your closest facilities to school, and if you can manage a quarter mile walk you'll find coffee shops, bars, parks, clothing and fitness centers within easy reach.

Neighborhoods for Students at Seattle Pacific University

Seattle Pacific University is located in the North Queen Anne neighborhood, close to Fremont, Wallingford, Lake Union and Interbay. Fremont, Wallingford and North Queen Anne offer some great housing options. Fremont is a little busier and more population dense, but offers cheaper housing than other neighborhoods do.

Choose Queen Anne, Westlake or Broadway if you prefer to be close to the center of town, but still in an apartment convenient to school.

Seattle Apartments for Rent

Seattle apartments are mostly clustered around the central business area, with the outer districts giving way to freestanding houses. The Seattle CBD and suburbs, with their high median annual income, are also quite expensive places for rentals compared with other cities.

You'll be looking at$500 to $700 per month for a bottom of the range apartment rental, and even studio apartments can cost upwards of $850 per month. A bonus is that there are several apartment options within only a few mile radius of your school, though.
