Discover Spokane

Monroe Street Bridge and Spokane River
Great Location

Spokane is the vibrant metropolitan center of our region — a hub for culture and business. We offer city living without the hassle of congested traffic and high rent, and we're close to nature and outdoor activities. Our two main campuses are on each side of Spokane, and further south we offer programs in the friendly college town of Pullman.

Affordable

Spokane is a smaller city with a wide range of affordable housing options. It is more economical to live in Spokane than in Seattle or Portland, at a cost of about $18,000 per school year for tuition, books and housing.
