Our campus is a 15 minute walk uphill from downtown Seattle. Capitol Hill is a pedestrian friendly neighborhood and the college offers plenty of bicycle parking on campus.
Seattle Central is just a few blocks from Interstate 5. Carpooling is encouraged when possible since parking spaces are limited.
Students can purchase an evening parking permit to be used in the 1609 Harvard Avenue Garage. The pass is $35 during fall, winter and spring quarters, and $25 during summer quarter. The college's garage offers all day parking for $10 and the lot can get full during the day; there is usually ample parking during evenings and summer.
There are also private parking lots on Harvard Avenue and Broadway as well as metered street parking.
