Seattle Insight Meditation (SIMS) meets at the University Friends Meeting House on Monday evenings from 7:00-9:00 pm.

Public Transit

The facility has good access to public transit (Bus routes 31, 32, 49 and 70).


The facility has 21 onsite parking places and good access to public transit (Bus routes 31, 32, 49 and 70).

We've tried to collect some info below about parking in the area.

Parking UW Campus

The 3 UW lots of interest are shown on the western part of this UW campus overview map - http://www.washington.edu/maps/ We surveyed these lots during the evening (weekdays) and found an abundance of parking.

Self Service Lots – Apparently just raised the rate to $4.00/hr (Possibly less in the evening) - https://transportation.uw.edu/files/media/UW-Campus-Map-Self-Serve-Lots-All-20190701.jpg  Shows W10, W12, & W41. Note that most of the other lots shown are committed to residential housing…)

Lot W10, 1084 Cowlitz Rd. NE (S. of Lincoln Way, N. of NR Cowlitz Rd. Enter from Cowlitz Pl NE – click on W10 to get a blow up of the vicinity

Lot W 12, 3940 Brooklyn Ave NE (N. of Burke Gilman trail, E of Brooklyn Ave NE. Enter from Brooklyn - click on W10 to get a blow up of the vicinity

Parking is not enforced and is thus complimentary at the self-help lots after 9 PM weekdays, after noon on Sat. and all day Sunday.

Info on self-serve lots - https://transportation.uw.edu/park/visitor/self-serve

Permit lot

We believe it is $6.00 in the evening, but you have to get a permit for it.  Parking is not enforced all day Sunday, and after 12 noon on Saturday so that parking is free.  University Friends uses lot 41 for their Sunday meetings.
