Seattle Central College is just two blocks South of the Capitol Hill Link Light Rail stations on Broadway.

By Bus

Several King County Metro Transit bus routes serve the college. For assistance charting your route to Seattle Central, use Metro's Trip Planner.

By Bike & Foot

Our campus is a 15–minute walk uphill from downtown Seattle. Capitol Hill has a dedicated bike lane on Broadway (the neighborhood's main thoroughfare) and plenty of bicycle parking on campus.

By Car

Seattle Central is just a few blocks from Interstate 5. Carpooling is encouraged when possible since parking spaces are at a premium. There are private parking lots on Harvard Avenue and Broadway and also metered street parking. The college's garage at 1609 Harvard Ave has limited public parking during the day; generally there is ample parking in the evening and during summer.

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.

Driving Directions
From Interstate 5 Northbound:

  • Take Olive Way/Denny Way Exit 166 (under the Washington State Convention and Trade Center) and follow Olive Way east to Denny Way and turn right.
  • Go up the hill and turn right on Broadway.
  • Follow Broadway south to Pine, turn right, and go one block west to the Parking Garage located at Harvard and Pine.

From Interstate 5 Southbound:

The Continuing Education office is located in room BE 1139, offices "i" through "m" in the Broadway Edison Building (the large brick building).
