We are so excited to be #CWUTogether again!

The 2021 fall quarter was a tremendous success, and everyone in the CWU community has done their part to ensure a safe transition back to in-person classes. After more than a year of physical distancing and virtual classes, we’re all looking forward to being CWU Together again this winter. 

As more people get vaccinated for COVID-19, we look forward to a future that includes more in-person classes and activities for winter quarter. 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.  

Learn more about the vaccination requirement and the safety of the three federally approved vaccines on our vaccination information page. For more information, continue reading below and visit our FAQ pages for students and employees. If you are looking for additional resources, check out this handy guide.

We can't wait to see you on campus — 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 brighter today than it was a year ago, we must continue to be vigilant as we prepare for winter quarter. Read more about the health and safety measures that will continue to be in place for this winter.


    Winter quarter instruction will look a lot like it did in the fall, with 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 winter.

      Student Life

      The hardest part about the past year has been that our students haven’t been able to spend much time together in-person. That has changed dramatically this year, 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 new year.

      Housing & Dining

      Campus was 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 again this winter. Here are a few resources that will help you prepare.

      Sites & Centers

      Most of CWU’s eight university sites and centers returned to mostly normal operations this fall, but policies regarding in-person classes still depend on our host institutions. Find out what's happening at the site or center nearest you.

        Community Wi-Fi

        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.
