[AES Pacific NW Section - Seatle USA]
Around the Seattle area, Washington, U.S.A.
The University of Washington campus is located in Seattle, just north of the Lake Washington Ship Canal. It is bounded by I5 to the west, 25th Ave NE to the East, and NE 45th Street to the north.
The Raitt Hall doors are usually closed at 5pm, so we will have one entryway (doors 10A/10B in tiny black labels at the top of the doors) open for this event. This doorway is on the side of the building facing Denny Hall, which is opposite the grassy quad/cherry trees, to the right as you face the correct side of the building. Signs will be posted around the building.

To get to room 121 you have to go down the stairs as you enter, or take the elevator to level 1 (fully wheelchair accessible).

The University is very large and has many entrances and parking areas. Raitt Hall is on a corner of the central quadrangle, between the Art building and Savery Hall. In all cases, the following directions apply if you drive to the UW:

Stop at the entrance kiosk. Tell the attendent you are attending a presentation at Raitt Hall (not a class). Pay a $5 fee (flat rate fee after 4pm). Ask for a map, and for directions to your assigned parking area and to Raitt Hall. Parking is strictly enforced until 9pm, so it is inadvisable to try bucking the system. There are many 7pm classes, so plan accordingly.

The primary entrance to campus is at NE 45th St. and 17th Ave. NE. From I-5, take the NE45th St. exit eastbound. Follow NE45th St. about 10 blocks east until 17th Ave. NE, where the UW is a right (south) turn.
