What to bring
We ordered great weather, but please be sure to check the Bellingham weather forecast before you visit. We recommend layered clothing, a light rain jacket or umbrella, comfortable shoes, and sunglasses.
Also, bring a water bottle. This is a bottled water-free campus, supporting one of Western’s core values of environmental sustainability. You can purchase cups of water at any of our campus eateries, or fill your own reusable water bottle at our many water fountains and filling stations.
