The Campus
The WSU Pullman campus, founded in 1890, features world-class facilities for teaching, research, the arts, and Pacific-12 Conference athletics. The campus is located on more than 620 acres among the rolling hills of southeastern Washington in a geographic region known as the Palouse. Due to significant investments from the state as well as private and federal support, outstanding new campus facilities have been constructed and others upgraded significantly during the past decade. Major new facilities include the PACCAR Environmental Technology Building, the Paul G. Allen Center for Global Animal Health, the Biotechnology Life Sciences Facility, and the Veterinary and Biomedical Research Building. Recent construction of three residence halls, a championship-level golf course, and a major addition to Martin Stadium, as well as construction of a football operations building, provide important amenities for the university community and contribute to Pullman’s status as a destination campus. Enrollment at the Pullman campus totaled 20,043 students for fall semester 2015—a record number. About 1,500 faculty, supported by 1,600 graduate assistants and 2,900 administrators and staff, work on the campus.
