When you arrive on campus
The Office of Admissions is located in Maxwell Hall, First Floor. As with many universities, parking is limited. For larger visit days and events, we often designate parking for visitors.

For other events or individual visits, a small number of spaces may be available in front of Somsen Hall at Sanborn and Johnson Streets. Additional parking may be available in the Gold and Purple Lots. We suggest that you stop at the Office of Admission, Maxwell 106, for a temporary permit for WSU-restricted lots.
