Transportation to campus (planes, trains, and automobiles)

Driving Directions
From the North
From Interstate 5, take Exit 132 and stay on the right side to head toward Gig Harbor/Bremerton/ Highway 16. Take the second exit, Union Avenue. Follow the directions below, starting with the second paragraph.

From the South
From Interstate 5, take Exit 132 to head toward Gig Harbor/Bremerton/Highway 16. Be careful; it is one of those ramps where you are trying to merge on to Highway 16, and people are trying to merge off it at the same location! Once you have merged onto Highway 16, take the next exit, Union Avenue.

Turn right at the light at the bottom of the ramp. Travel north about two miles, going straight through the light at 6th Avenue to the next light, North 11th Street (note that you will pass South 11th Street on the way to 6th Avenue; do not turn there!). At North 11th Street, you will see the football stadium on your right. Turn right, in front of the stadium, onto North 11th Street. Take the next left, North Lawrence Street, and go to the end of the street. The parking lot for Wheelock Student Center will be on your right.

If you are going to a specific building on campus other than to the Wheelock Student Center, please contact us, and we will be happy to provide directions to the specific areas you wish.
