Join us in Ellensburg

The synergy between the university and the community enhances student life at CWU, fostering personal growth and broader horizons.

Ellensburg and the Kittitas Valley

CWU is situated in the heart of Washington State amidst the scenic landscapes of Eastern Washington.

Our main campus in Ellensburg, WA has a vibrant local community that we encourage our students to take advantage of. Settled in Kittitas County, beyond the Cascades in Eastern Washington, students can step outside of campus and into an active community of farmers, artists, proud small-business owners, and outdoor enthusiasts.
