Navigator is a free web service that helps people get around the UW Seattle campus. Using either a mobile device or desktop computer, Navigator provides pedestrian navigation to find classrooms, offices, restrooms, hallways, and other important points of interest.

  • Expanding results: search for over 14,000 offices, classrooms, labs, buildings and other destinations
  • Reimagine the schedule: plan your classroom to appointment walking times using walk-time estimates
  • Lift off: get to the top without stairs by turning on the ‘Avoid Stairs’ toggle before searching for directions
  • Search for rooms using location codes on your class schedule
  • See your location in real-time
