Historic Deco Digs Nestled in the University District

Here at Graduate, we believe life is a timeless journey filled with memory making stops, extraordinary rites of passage and all of the courageous leaps of faith that get you where you’re going. Welcome to Graduate Seattle—where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay.

Our historic 1930s art deco digs, are just a 10-minute walk to The Quad, right in the University District—making us Husky headquarters for meet-ups and meetings and U-Dub central for Purple Reign days or a Neptune Theater pre-show hang.

Purple Pride runs deep in our library lobby, inviting all Dawgs past and present. Over 36 feet of plaidly clad sofas ease up to a communal coffee table warmly perched fireside.  An installation of seashell mobiles dances above our Pacific Northwest perch, an amped up wall install invites musical conversation and jewel toned rooms wink at our storied past. Take in a top down view of The Sound and mountainous backdrop from our rooftop bar, serving delicious views, light bites and decadent drinkage.

So, whether you’re in town rallying for a Husky win, a peek at Pike Place Market or a spin on the Great Wheel, we’re here to make it memorable. Our warm, friendly and whip-smart staff (#humblebrag) can guide you in and around Seattle’s finest—so that you feel like a local, at home again even if it’s your first time in town. (Space Needle anyone?)

Our rooms are ready for a night like you’ve never had before, where little moments of surprise and discovery will meet you down every corridor and around each corner. This is Graduate–be ready to be inspired.

Pet Friendly

We love furry friends probably a little more than the next guy and would never dare ask you leave them at home during your travels. In fact, when you bring your four-legged companion along for the ride, they stay for free and will enjoy a pup perk* compliments of our pals at BarkBox.

 *We’ll outfit your room with a bowl and blanket for your pup to enjoy during their stay. If you wish to take either item home with you, they are available for purchase through our front desk. BarkBoxes can also be added to your reservation for a small fee or purchased upon arrival at the front desk.
