South Seattle College

“Start Here, Go Anywhere”

Founded in 1969, South Seattle College is located in West Seattle on an 87-acre wooded campus that overlooks Downtown Seattle and Elliott Bay. The campus includes a six-acre Arboretum and the adjacent Seattle Chinese Garden, both of which provide a living laboratory for Landscape Horticulture students.

The College has three off-campus sites: The Georgetown Campus (Apprenticeship programs and Green Technology Training facility), the New Holly Learning Center, and the Harbor Island Training Center (marine welding program).

The College provides instruction in over 51 certificate and two-year degree programs, as well as three Bachelor of Applied Science degrees in Hospitality Management, Professional Technical Education and Instruction, and Sustainable Building Science Technology.
