The easiest and cheapest way to get to campus from Sea-Tac airport is to take the light rail and a bus. Instructions:

"Catch Sound Transit's Link Light Rail service from Sea-Tac, located on the other side of the airport parking garage. The fare is $2.50 for adults. Ride the train to the end of the line (about 40 minutes) to Westlake Station, then catch a Metro bus #71, #72, or #73 (usually $2 fare) heading north to University Way NE & NE 41st Street. The campus is to the east (to your right), just across 15th Ave NE. (Total travel time is a little under an hour.) For exact bus times and fare info, check the King County Metro Transit trip planner."
