University Way NE, colloquially The Ave (no period; pronounced /æv/), is the commercial heart of the University District and the off-campus extension of the University of Washington (UW) in Seattle. Once "a department store eight blocks long," The Ave has gradually turned into what now resembles an eight-block-long global food court.

It is patronized by many of the nearly 96,900 students, faculty, and staff of the UW; by the largely white and middle class residents of the U.
