About the WWU Campus Map

Return to Campus Maps

The WWU Campus Map is an interactive web map developed by Western Washington University (WWU) students at the Spatial Institute at the College of the Environment.



  • Use the Features dropdown menu to turn different layers of campus map features on / off
  • Use the Building, Services, Key Places or Department dropdown menus to zoom to a particular location on campus
  • Use the Legend button to open / close a Map Key
  • Click on a building (or other map feature) for additional information and links


  • Click and drag the map to Pan across the campus
  • The zoom slider (upper right) can be used to Zoom in / out
  • The mouse scroll wheel can also be used to Zoom in / out
  • Hold down the shift button and left-click-hold-drag to drag a box around a particular area of interest to zoom in to that area


  • The central focus of the map is the main WWU Campus in Bellingham, WA
  • Additionally, publicly-owned green spaces (i.e., Sehome Arboretum, Forest & Cedar Park, etc.) are included for neighborhood context
  • Off-campus locations also mapped include Shannon Pt. Marine Center and the Lakewood Watersports Facility

CUSTOM URL's (see notes and list below)

  • Departments and Offices on campus can use a custom URL to link to the map zoomed in directly to their building
  • Custom URL's can also be used to link to the map with different individual layers turned ON already (i.e., a Parking map with the Parking features turned on)
  • See list of building and Feature layer URL's below, along with notes on using these URL's


Feedback, edits or suggestions for the map are welcome: Stefan@wwu.edu



The Spatial Institute is a part of the College of the Environment at Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA. The Spatial Institute provides a venue for collaborative research and exchange of spatial information and analysis among College of the environment faculty, students and staff and the larger community.

This webmap was developed using ESRI's ArcGIS and the ArcGIS API for JavaScript.


Custom URL Map Links:

Departments, offices, services, events and individuals are encouraged to use a Custom URL to link directly to the building they wish to highlight. Additional, map links can be used that will display the map with a specified Feature layer (i.e., Parking, Accessibility, Food Services, etc.) turned ON. Below is a list of custom URL's that can be used for the different layers and building.
