Finding the The Department of Biostatistics
The Department of Biostatistics is one of five departments within the School of Public Health (along with Epidemiology, Health Services, Environmental Health, and Global Health).

The main department office is located on the sixth floor of the F-Wing of the Magnuson Health Sciences Center (aka Health Sciences Building or HSB), with the Graduate Program Office located on the sixth floor of H-Wing.

The Health Sciences Building is on the southern end of the campus, overlooking Portage Bay and Montlake Cut, and attached to the University of Washington Medical Center. A campus map can be found here.

On-street parking around the UW campus is scarce. If you plan to drive regularly to campus, it is recommended you purchase your parking permit on the first day of the quarter. Please refer to the Transportation web page in this guide for more information on commuting and parking.

When you have found the Health Sciences Building, stay on floors 3 and 4. (Floors 1, 2 and 6 do not connect most wings.) When you have found F-wing, go all the way (avoiding the freight elevator) to the southern end of the hallway (towards the water) and take one of the two elevators to the sixth floor. The elevator will bring you directly to the Biostatistics Department office.
