Set in the heart of Seattle University’s beautiful and tranquil campus, Sullivan Hall is a spectacular, five-story building that houses all law classrooms as well as faculty and administrative offices. It’s an ideal place to study and teach, with ample open space that fosters collaboration among students, faculty, and staff.

The building was named for former Seattle University President William Sullivan, S.J., who oversaw the acquisition of the law school in 1993 from the University of Puget Sound. Construction then began on the new home, which opened its doors to students in 1999.

Highlights of the building include:

  • Modern and spacious classrooms with the latest in technology
  • Robust WiFi network
  • Cafe serving excellent food and coffee throughout the day
  • A working courtroom
  • Large windows that fill the building with light, a grand staircase between the first and third floors,
  • Eclectic collection of artwork by noted local artists (including Jacob Lawrence) displayed prominently throughout the common spaces.
  • A variety of common areas

Downtown Seattle – the epicenter of business, technology, and legal practice in the Northwest – is only a 15-minute walk from Sullivan Hall. The First Hill/Capitol Hill neighborhood, where Seattle U’s campus is located, is filled with an eclectic mix of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, galleries, parks, and entertainment venues, providing a multiple places to enjoy your time outside of law school.
