CWU’s exceptionally beautiful and well-maintained residential campus occupies 367 acres in Ellensburg, the largest city and county seat of historic Kittitas County. The city is situated in the geographic center of the state and on the Eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains.

The Cascades are tall, with several mountains boasting an altitude above 10,000’ feet, with its highest peak at the active stratovolcano of Mount Rainier. The Northern Cascades are home to its namesake national park (Northern Cascades National Park), the lake-resort city of Chelan, and the historic railroad town of Skykomish. The Northern Cascades are known as a world-class destination for hiking, mountain biking, fishing, camping, whitewater rafting, boating, skiing and snowboarding.

As one of Washington’s founding communities, Ellensburg’s downtown is composed of beautiful brick buildings largely constructed between 1889 and 1917, and located just three blocks from the CWU campus. Weekends bring delicious local food, fresh produce, regional crafts, and eclectic entertainment downtown at the Kittitas County Farmer’s Market. Over the years, Ellensburg has a gained a reputation as one of the healthiest cities in the state, and has been praised for its “compact, walkable streets, where 14.3 percent of residents commute by foot, one of the highest percentages in the state”. Ellensburg is home to many top arts and cultural events in Washington, including Jazz in the Valley, Dachshunds on the Parade, Buskers in the ‘Burg, and Sprit of the West.

Ellensburg is located approximately 100 miles and under 2 hours away from the Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue metropolitan area. With an estimated population of more than 3,600,000, Seattle Metro is the 15th largest metropolitan area in the United States. The “Puget Sound” is home to many natural attractions including the Seattle Unit National Historical Park, offering a glimpse into the history of the Klondike Gold Rush, the Big Four Ice Caves, and the 700+ islands and reef scattering of the San Juan Islands.  Top employers either headquartered or with a large presence in the region include Microsoft, Amazon, Seattle, Starbucks, Boeing, Costco, Nordstrom, Weyerhaeuser, and Qwest Communications.

Also located around 2 hours away from Ellensburg are the “Tri-Cities” of Pasco, Kennewick and Richland, set at the confluence of the Yakima, Snake, and Columbia rivers. The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, one of the United States Department of Energy’s major national laboratories, is a major economic engine for the area. Kennewick is known for more than a hundred wineries and regionally well-known microbreweries. The Columbia River Plateau contains many natural and historical attractions including the Hanford Site, the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and Multnomah Falls.
