Tumwater University is about bringing neighbors together to build vibrant communities.

Become a student for two evening during Tumwater University. You’ll get the chance to become a scholar on all the important things that make Tumwater a special place to live, work, and play. Learn about our City’s history, day-to-day operations, and our plans for future growth.

We invite members of local government, elected officials, and professionals who offer informative and interactive classes at Tumwater City Hall. Students receive a course book with resources and information to help choose their courses. The program culminates with the opportunity for students to help guide City priorities in the coming year through an interactive group session with City leaders.
