Funding UW Mathematics Graduate School

Graduate education is expensive, but most math grad students at UW are fully supported throughout their graduate careers by a combination of teaching assistantships, research assistantships, and fellowships. The following links provide information on costs and resources for funding.


Seattle is not a cheap place to live. One housing option is the on-campus housing available for both single students and families. However, it fills up rapidly, so be sure to get your reservation in as early as possible; even then, you might be put on the waiting list and have to wait until after the start of Autumn quarter before you can move in.

A variety of off-campus rental housing is available: rooms in boarding houses or shared apartments can usually be found. To locate rental housing google uw rental housing or Seattle rental housing.

New international students should get in contact with the Foundation for International Understanding Through Students (FIUTS), which offers a wide range of services including homestays with volunteer hosts when you first arrive in Seattle, assistance with finding permanent housing, and a special orientation program for international students.
