Located in Bellingham, Washington, Western Washington University is nestled in the Pacific Northwest - one of the most beautiful regions in the country. Resting beside the mainland is an expansive coastline and array of Puget Sound islands.

Lush forests, mountain landscapes and islands are all within an easy drive or ferry ride, making Bellingham a favorite destination for outdoor enthusiasts.

Bellingham boasts views of the magnificent San Juan Islands and Bellingham Bay.  Visitors enjoy the small-town feel and easy access to the many walking trails, community parks, entertainment and dining options.

Along Bellingham’s waterfront are luxury hotels and restaurants framed by parks and promenades and the popular Squalicum Harbor Marina.

The historic Fairhaven district, located on the south-end of Bellingham, is built upon brick-lined roads and features buildings built during the turn of the century. Visitors can peruse through bookstores, restaurants and gift shops in the historic district.
