[Kirkland, Washington, July 17, 2020] – In accordance with state guidelines for postsecondary education institutions and for the health and safety of all individuals, Northwest University’s campus facilities are closed to the general public. In order to best protect NU students and the Kirkland community, it is crucial to limit the number of people using Northwest’s facilities as much as possible. For the time being, the following campus spaces are closed to the general public: campus buildings, soccer fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, the sand volleyball court, the disc golf course, and all recreational fields. Neighbors and community members walking through campus are still welcome. Northwest University faculty, staff, and students must have their university ID cards with them at all times while on campus. Individuals without a university ID card while using campus facilities will be asked to leave.
