Updated campus maps available!

Greetings,Thumbnail image of the new campus map

The general campus map has been updated to reflect a number of corrections, updates, and the addition of our new student residence hall.

  • Printed Maps — Please use and distribute this new hard copy map. You’ll notice it’s a two-sided document with the map on one side and parking/shuttle information on the other. When printing, you can elect to print one or both pages, depending on your needs.
  • Website — The map web page has been updated, and a plan is in the works to replace this with a fully interactive Google Map at some point in the future.
  • Signage — Safety & Security has updated most outdoor maps to reflect the addition of Building 7000 and will continue to make adjustments as needed.

Thank you!

Residence hall update & student move-in schedule

After years of planning and months of preparation, our student residence hall is finally a reality! We are thrilled to welcome our first-ever student residents. At the time of opening, we expect to be at 90% occupancy, with a rich mix of domestic and international students across various ages and programs.

Here is what you need to know about what’s happening at 7000 Campus Living this month:


  • Campus entrances and parking will be impacted September 7-13, when all furniture will be delivered and installed in the building. We ask for your patience during this big event! There will be several work crews, large trucks, and pallets of furniture temporarily staged in various parking areas and walkways.
  • Employees are asked to avoid using the main entrance to campus September 7-13. Please enter at the West Gate to reduce traffic congestion near Building 7000.
  • The visitor parking lot will be closed during this time and visitors will be directed to enter at the West Gate and park in the west lot (fees and permits will not be required).
  • One of the vendors, Correctional Industries, will have an experienced crew working onsite during these dates. While many schools, including UW, routinely use their services with no issues or complications, we wanted to let you know about their presence on our campus.


  • Please anticipate increased traffic to campus September 14-22 for student move-in.
  • Resident Assistants and Avery Whittington, Assistant Director of Residential Life, will move in September 7-8. New international students will move in September 14-15. New and continuing domestic students and continuing international students will move in September 20-22.
  • Students will be assigned three-hour blocks between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. on those days to move their belongings in. Rolling carts will be provided to assist them. Be ready for a buzz of activity at the main campus entrance and visitor lot as parents and others help students settle into their new living arrangement.


  • Join us for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, September 26 at 11:00 a.m. in front of 7000 Campus Living. Students and employees will be able to tour the building at 12:00 p.m.


  • For the first several weeks of fall quarter, we will not accept reservations for campus events in Building 7000 to ensure that our students’ move-in process goes smoothly and they have first priority to use the space as they settle in. Room reservation information will be made available later in the quarter. For questions about future reservations, please contact Jenifer Adelotte.

Thank you!

New campus bookstore vendor coming Fall 2019

The College is pleased to announce it has engaged the nationally recognized Follett Corporation to be the new campus bookstore vendor beginning Fall 2019.

Shoreline will join many other colleges and universities, including Lake Washington Technical College and Renton Technical College, in utilizing Follett to better support campus bookstore and textbook needs and align the College with a better profit model. The new partnership has been reviewed with both our faculty and classified unions and will allow our Bookstore to utilize resources in the best manner possible while ensuring existing Bookstore staff will continue as employees of the College. 

Our contract with University Bookstore will end in early September, and the Bookstore will close between September 9-13 to transition vendors. College staff are working closely with Follett to coordinate a September 16 grand reopening. 

Faculty book orders for Fall quarter will continue to be filled by University Bookstore. During Opening Week, Follett will offer information sessions for faculty about how to place book orders for Winter quarter 2020.

Additional details and benefits about this partnership (including a forthcoming e-commerce platform) will be shared with the campus in the coming weeks.
