University of Washington Naval Reserve Training Corps

About Us

This NROTC unit was one of the first six established in the United States in 1926. A significant aspect of what makes Husky Battalion the best is the superior academic environment provided by the University of Washington. The availability of degree programs in all major scholastic fields, supported by outstanding facilities, has made a lasting contribution to the education of officers in today’s Navy and Marine Corps.

The NROTC program puts great emphasis on training for leadership. Military drill is regularly conducted for this purpose. Additionally, each midshipman gets ample opportunity to improve their leadership skills through Battalion staff positions. Other opportunities to lead and participate in the unit include rifle and pistol teams, intramural athletic teams, the Northwest Navy NROTC competition, field days, formal military balls, duty watches, and field exercises. All of these activities help form a strong culture of camaraderie and teamwork among the midshipmen that they take with them to the fleet.
