Living in Pullman

What can Pullman offer you?

The main campus is in Pullman, a town of nearly 30,000 located in the Palouse region of southeastern Washington, 75 miles south of Spokane and 285 miles east of Seattle.

Together with the University of Idaho, eight miles to the east in Moscow, the Pullman area provides an increasingly diverse center of cultural and intellectual life that offers many of the conveniences of an urban community with the character and amenities of a small town population. The cost of living is relatively low, and the climate offers warm springs and falls and moderate summers and winters. (Bring your winter jackets.)

Complete medical, health care, and emergency services are offered at Pullman Regional Hospital and also on campus at WSU Health and Wellness Services. There, board certified physicians and experienced healthcare providers give medical treatment to 10,000 students annually. With a built-in pharmacy, WSU Health and Wellness provides students with an on-campus medical facility unlike any other. The Pullman public schools provide outstanding K-12 education, with students consistently ranking among the highest in the state on standardized achievement tests.

Outdoor recreation opportunities such as hiking, camping, fishing, swimming, skiing and more are close and easily accessible at the Snake River parks and the mountain and lake regions of Washington and northern Idaho. The Student Recreation Center on campus is a state of the art facility that provides unique recreational opportunities for students and locals. At the Rec Center, students can use state of the art equipment, take classes such as cycling, climbing or yoga, or participate in the intramural sports programs.
