Students learning at Northeastern

Northeastern is proud to be Washington State’s first private research university.

The establishment of Northeastern University in Seattle resulted from two years of in-depth discussions between the university and the Seattle community. The Seattle regional campus, launched in 2013, is located in South Lake Union—a hub for cutting-edge thought leaders who inspire, create, and execute on new technologies and research daily.
