Our School of Public Health encompasses centers and locations on the Seattle UW campus.

Seattle Campus West Entrance

Hans Rosling Center for Population Health
is located near Architecture and Guthrie Hall

South Campus

Magnuson Health Sciences Building:


Physical activity is good for your health, and good for the environment, so we encourage active transportation when you visit us.  Active transportation includes walking, bicycling, or using public transportation. 

Once you’re in the building, there are staircases at almost every hallway intersection.  Please consider taking the stairs to get to the office you’re visiting; it’s healthier than riding the elevator (and often faster)!

The Hans Rosling Center for Population Health is located at 3980 15th Avenue NE near the West Entrance to UW-Seattle Campus. Check at the gatehouse for parking options.

The Dean's Office is located on the 2nd floor of the Hans Rosling Center.


For those walking in the UW neighborhood, check the searchable map to the UW campus.  For those cycling, the UW bike space page offers good maps and other route planning assistance.  A special asset is the Burke-Gilman multi-use trail, one of the nation’s great rail-to-trail projects.  The trail passes through campus, just across NE Pacific Street from our Magnuson Health Sciences Center, and foot bridges connect the trail to our building.  There are numerous bike racks just off the trail and throughout the UW campus.

Come south down Rainier Vista and turn right onto Grant Lane after passing the Administration building (Gerberding), then head down the sidewalk past Johnson Hall. Cross the street at Stevens Way and walk past the old Architecture Hall, then continue to the new Hans Rosling Center for Population Health on the left.

The Dean's Office is located on the south end of the 2nd floor.
