Husky Stadium is located on the campus of the University of Washington.
Alaska Airlines Field at Husky Stadium (colloquially known as simply Husky Stadium) is an outdoor football stadium on the campus of the University of Washington, Washington, United States. It has been the home of the Washington Huskies of the Pac-12 Conference since 1920, hosting its football games. The university also holds its annual commencement at the stadium in June. It is located at the southeastern corner of campus, between Montlake Boulevard N.E. and Union Bay, just north of the Montlake Cut. The stadium is served by the University of Washington Link light rail station, as well as several bus routes.
The stadium most recently underwent a $280 million renovation that was completed in 2013. Its U-shaped design was specifically oriented to minimize glare from the early afternoon sun in the athletes’ eyes. The open end overlooks scenic Lake Washington and the Cascade Mountains, including Count Rainier. Prior to the 2013 renovation, its total capacity of 72,500 made it the largest stadium in the Pacific Northwest and the 23rd largest in college football.
