Parking - New Information

Due to new parking policies, we no longer offer on-campus parking for our fairs. Instead, we are using WWU’s off-campus Lincoln Creek Park-and-Ride located at 800 Lincoln Street (see map; exit 252 off I-5).

A “Bellair” shuttle will transport you from the parking lot to the info fair venue as this is not a walk-able distance from the off-campus parking location. Shuttle travel times between pick-ups will be longer than for previous years. In inclement weather, there are covered bus stops available for wait periods.

Please arrive at least an hour (or more!) before the event starts to ensure that you are set up at the venue before the doors open to students at 10:00 a.m.

If you have any questions about these parking changes, please call the Career Services Center office at (360) 650-3240.



Special Accomodations

To request disability accommodation, contact Diane Flores at 360-650-4240, Diane.Flores@wwu.edu.


Thank you for your interest in Western's students. We hope you can join us. If you have questions, please contact Anna Tognazzini or Diane Flores.

Sincerely,
