We love to meet with prospective students and families!

Appointments are available Monday through Friday during regular business hours. Please email Fairhaven Admissions or call (360) 650-2123 to schedule an appointment. We recommend scheduling a visit at least one week in advance but we can sometimes accommodate drop-in visits if we are available.

While you are in Bellingham, we also recommend checking out the rest of the Western Washington University campus. The Western Admissions Office provides general Western Campus Tours, as well as other events such as Admitted Student Days for first-time freshman and Transfer Days for prospective transfer students.
