There are several hotels very close to campus if you need to stay the night:

* If you have an extra day... try to visit the Evergreen Air & Space Meuseum and Water Park. This is home to Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose and a waterpark that has a Boeing 747 on top of the building that you jump out of as the top of a water slide. It is only 12 miles from campus.


From I-5:
  • From the south, take the Donald/Aurora exit (278) north of Salem. Follow the signs to Newberg. When you reach 99W, turn left. Just past the highway split near the center of town, turn right on Meridian Street. After one block, you will see the campus on the right.
  • From the north, take the Tigard/Newberg exit (294) shortly after leaving Portland city limits. Stay on 99W until you reach Newberg. At Meridian Street (just past the highway split near the center of town), turn right. Campus is on the right.

Northbound 99W (coming from McMinnville and Dundee):
  • From 99W, turn left on Meridian. Follow Meridian Street across southbound 99W (Hancock Street) for one block; campus is on the right.
