Highly recommend seeing the Suzzallo Library Reading Room which is located on the 2 floor of the Library Campus. It's gothic architecture style will impress you. Other old campuses are also well worth the visit. Highly recommend!

There is free street parking north of campus on 17th Ave NE and NE 50th St. There is a two hour time limit until 8 pm Mon-Sat. If you don't want to walk far, then park in one of the lots near campus. I recommend the... More
