Seattle is home to many computer and technology giants, both individuals and companies.  One of those giants, Paul Allen, is the namesake for the Computer Science and Engineering Building (map) at the University of Washington (map).

The UW was founded in 1861, and is a well respected public research university.  It’s the largest university in Washington State, and one of the oldest on the west coast.  The university has three campuses, the largest in the University District (where the computer science building is located), and smaller satellite campuses in Tacoma and Bothell.

With a ranking among the world’s top universities (16th in 2009), the UW brings a lot of people to the Seattle area.
