Washington State University, Pullman
Washington State University’s educational enterprise serves the entire state—ranging from the metropolitan Puget Sound region to the rural areas of northeastern and southeastern Washington. That enterprise has expanded in recent years to better meet the needs of Washington’s growing economy and its increasing population.
The Pullman campus is the oldest and largest campus in the WSU system. Most of the system’s senior administrative team, including WSU’s president and provost, are based in Pullman. Enrollment totaled 21,022 students for the 2018 fall semester. About 1,500 faculty, supported by 1,600 graduate assistants and 2,900 administrators and staff, work on the Pullman campus.
Due to significant investments from the state as well as private and federal support, outstanding new campus facilities have been constructed and others upgraded during the past decade. Major new facilities include a digital classroom building, a plant sciences facility, a multicultural center, a veterinary and biomedical research building, and the PACCAR Environmental Technology Building.

Pullman Area
Pullman is a dynamic center of higher education, research, and culture located in a region called the Palouse. The region is home to two land grant universities, Washington State University and the University of Idaho located just eight miles to the east in Moscow, Idaho. Washington’s second-largest city, Spokane, is located 75 miles north of Pullman. Demographics Daily designated Pullman a “dreamtown,” reflecting the city’s exceptionally high quality of life. Bloomberg Businessweek named Pullman the “Best Places to Raise Your Kids” in Washington. The city also boasts one of the highest percentages of graduate degrees among U.S. micropolitan areas, and its public school system has been ranked among the top 100 in the country. Excellent outdoor recreation opportunities—including golfing, skiing, hiking, and boating—are just a short drive away.
