Campus Locations

Lake Washington Institute of Technology's main campus is located in the city of Kirkland, off Interstate 405, in northern King County. Kirkland is ten miles east of Seattle, west of Redmond and just north of Bellevue.

Located on the eastern shore of Lake Washington, Kirkland has built a sophisticated, urban lifestyle around the waterfront. More than two miles of waterfront and nearly a quarter of the city's total 10.5 square-mile area is public parks and moorage. Opportunities for outdoor recreation abound and the surrounding area offers a wealth of diverse arts, entertainment, and cultural attractions.

LWTech's second campus, the Redmond campus, is located next to Marymoor Park and houses the Accounting degree and certificates program and beginning Fall 2012 will be home to the Human Resources Management certificate program. The design of the building reflects the aesthetic beauty of the area while respecting the modern context of Redmond as a center for industry and cutting-edge technology.
