University of Puget Sound

Founded in 1888 in a vibrant port city in the Pacific Northwest, University of Puget Sound is an independent, residential undergraduate liberal arts college.

Our 97-acre campus supports connection with the world it serves, from the tide flats of Tacoma to the Pacific Rim and beyond.

A Puget Sound education is centered on our 2,400 students who are open-minded, outward-reaching, and passionate about putting their education to work. Guided by our motto, ‘To the Heights’, we seek to educate the whole person, and to give each student space to discover and room to rise to meet new challenges.
