Tour Information

Location of Communication Sciences and Disorders Department

Thank you for your interest in our Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) programs at Western Washington University. The Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic main entrance is located on the second floor (this is the ground floor) of Academic Instructional Center. The building is abbreviated either AI or AIC on campus maps. Please meet your student tour guide on the 3rd floor in the center open lobby area by the elevator.

Driving Directions

If you put the general campus address of 516 High St. into a GPS, it will take you to the center of campus and not to Academic Instructional Center. We suggest the driving directions below:

From the South

  1. From Interstate 5, take exit 252.
  2. Turn left off the ramp onto S. Samish Way.
  3. Turn left at the stop light onto N. Samish Way.
  4. Stay in the left lane and go over the freeway.
  5. At the second light, turn left onto Bill McDonald Parkway/Byron Avenue – there will be a Wendy's and a 76 Station on your left.
  6. Drive on Bill McDonald Parkway for just over 1 mile and continue straight through two stop lights (you will still be on the Bill McDonald Parkway).
  7. This will bring you onto the south side of campus, past the visitor center and the C Parking Lots. The AI building is a short walk from the C lots.

From the North

  1. From Interstate 5 going south, take exit 252 and get in the right lane.
  2. Turn right off the ramp onto N. Samish Way, and get into the left lane.
  3. At the next light, turn left onto Bill McDonald Parkway/Byron Avenue - there will be a Wendy's and a 76 Station on your left.
  4. Drive on Bill McDonald Parkway for just over 1 mile and continue straight through two stop lights (you will still be on the Bill McDonald Parkway).
  5. This will bring you onto the south side of campus, past the visitor center and the C Parking Lots. The AI building is a short walk from the C lots.

Parking

The interactive parking map can help with parking locations.
 
Visitor parking is usually available in Parking Lot C (C/CR), where you will need to purchase a visitor pass from the kiosks. Depending on the time of day parking can be limited, so we suggest you arrive early to ensure you find a parking spot. The small parking lot in front of the clinic is reserved for clinic clients. There are more parking details located here: https://www.wwu.edu/parking/, or you can call Parking Services at 360-650-2945.

Full Campus Tour

You can also schedule a full campus tour through the admissions office. A discounted parking rate of $4 per day is available to guests. To receive your discount at a parking kiosk, you will need your license plate number and the code found in your confirmation email for the full campus tour.
