About Puget Sound
University of Puget Sound is a leading national liberal arts and sciences university preparing students for success since 1888.
Located in the vibrant port city of Tacoma, Washington, we explore knowledge from multiple perspectives in our rigorous academic programs. We challenge and support students, faculty, and staff as we work together to meet the needs of a changing world.
The Princeton Review named our campus one of the most beautiful in the country. It’s a place where ideas come to life, and we put them to work in service of a better, more equitable and sustainable future.
We thrive on entrepreneurial energy. You will find us immersed in our local community, as well as in nearby Seattle, the Pacific Rim, and beyond. Known for exceptional programs in the sciences and committed to equity and justice, Puget Sound produces Rhodes and Fulbright scholars, Peace Corps volunteers, and leaders in business, finance, medicine, public service, scientific research, and the arts—locally and around the globe.
