We look forward to being #CWUTogether again!
Fall quarter 2021 is almost here, and everyone in the CWU community is ready for a fresh start. After a year of physical distancing and virtual classes, we’re all looking forward to a more traditional campus experience than we’ve had in more than a year.
As more people get vaccinated for COVID-19, we can continue looking toward a future that includes more in-person classes and activities. But we must all do our part if we are going to achieve our goal of providing a safe environment for CWU students and employees. That means getting vaccinated as soon as possible.
CWU is encouraging everyone to do their part by requiring a vaccination prior to the start of Fall quarter on September 22. We don’t want you to miss out on any of the excitement, so make your appointment today (if you haven’t already done so).
Learn more about the vaccination requirement and the safety of the three federally approved vaccines on our vaccination information page. For more information about Fall 2021, continue reading below and visit our FAQ pages for students and employees.
We look forward to seeing you on campus this fall — and we know we will get there if we remain #CWUTogether!
Health & Safety
Ensuring the safety of our students, employees, and members of the community continues to be a priority at CWU. Although our outlook is much brighter today than it was a year ago, we must continue to be vigilant as we prepare for Fall quarter. Read more about the health and safety measures that will continue to be in place for this fall.
Fall quarter instruction will look much different than it did over the past 16 months, with far more in-person course offerings to choose from. CWU also wants to encourage students to take advantage of the many on-campus resources available to you. Learn more about Central's academic outlook for this fall.
The hardest part about the past year has been that our students haven’t been able to spend much time together in-person. That will change dramatically this fall, with the return of face-to-face club meetings, on-campus events, and — of course — CWU sports! Find out what's happening on campus in the fall.
Housing & Dining
Campus will be filled with students again this fall after more than a year of waiting. We can’t wait to welcome you back to our residence halls, apartments, dining facilities, and on-campus stores. Here are a few resources that will help you prepare.
Sites & Centers
Most of CWU’s eight university sites and centers will return to mostly normal operations this fall, but policies regarding vaccines and in-person classes will depend on our host institutions. Find out what's happening at the site or center nearest you.
CWU provides free Wi-Fi across the campus. Additionally, the coverage area has been expanded through a partnership with three local government offices and a nonprofit to provide free internet access through a program called Community Wi-Fi. CWU’s Wi-Fi hotspot, in the paved parking lot outside of Tomlinson Stadium is available to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Computers, Laptops & Printing
The Multimodal Education Center offers a diverse lineup of multimedia equipment ranging from personal use MacBooks and PC Laptops to GoPros and professional level Canon DSLRs. Equipment checkout is free to all members of the CWU community with a current CWU Connection Card.
