There are many ways to get to WWU. We encourage alternative transportation to reduce the strain on the environment and limited parking accommodations. This also lets you enjoy views of the bay and Bellingham's notorious greenery a little more on your way here.

On the Campus Map, click the Features button at the top to view helpful features such as bus stops, bike racks, walking trails, dining locations, accessibility and labeled parking lots. Be sure to peruse our outdoor sculpture collection while you're here!

C/CR Lots

On the south end of campus, the C/CR lots have free parking on weekends and evenings (after 4:30pm)! The C lots are the largest university parking lots available. Bring a debit or credit card for the pay station at other times. If your destination is in the center or north end of campus, please allow yourself at least 20 minutes to get from your parking spot to your destination. WTA buses also stop here frequently so you can shuttle across campus without spending much time on your feet!
