CityU moves to Seattle

CityU of  Seattle has always identified itself with the state’s largest city, even though its campus is in Bellevue. But in December, the non-profit university is moving across the lake, to the Sixth and Wall building on the edge of Belltown.

CityU will take up about 88,000 square feet of the building at 6th Avenue and Wall Street, a block away from Elephant Car Wash. The building is owned by Seattle developer David Sabey. The move is scheduled for December, and the building will open its doors to students in January 2013.

“We have classrooms in Northgate, but we really are looking to move into an area more accessible by bus, Sound Transit, train or walking,” said spokeswoman Tarsi Hall.

The first floor of the new location — which was once the headquarters of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer — will contain classrooms, teaching facilities and resource centers. The second floor will contain administrative offices and academic support staff.

CityU started in Seattle in 1973 as a nonprofit university designed to serve nontraditional students — adult learners who needed to go to work and school at the same time. Many of its offerings are online, and it also offers programs at locations in Australia, Canada, Mexico, Slovakia, Greece, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Romania, The Czech Republic and China.

As of 2010, it had an enrollment of 2,700 in the United States and 8,000 worldwide.
