2020 Accommodations

Lodging Options for NOWCAM 2020

 

On-Campus Housing is Limited
WWU is still in academic session, so there are limited rooms available on campus.
 
Airbnb Options
You can find some options for housing using room sharing. When I just looked, there were many options for a variety of types and sizes of housing during the weekend of NOWCAM. Many of these are within walking distance of WWU.
 
Hotels in and around Bellingham
There are decent, and affordable, options not too far from campus. There are also some pleasant options if you want to live in style and have the wherewithal to manage it.  There are several other hotel options in Bellingham that I have not listed. 
 
Affordable and close:
 
Four Points by Sheraton
(Formally called the Best Western Lakeway Inn)
714 Lakeway Drive

Reasonably priced for a standard hotel.
 
GuestHouse Inn
805 Lakeway Dr
Bellingham, WA 98229

This may be one of the least expensive options, and is a reasonable place according to student visitors to our department over the last few years.
 
Days Inn Bellingham
215 N. Samish Way
(360) 734-8830
Another less expensive option.
