Campus Life

North Seattle College offers a vibrant and culturally rich campus experience with more than 20 different nations and countless cultures represented by our student population; and with many clubs and organizations for you to participate in, North is sure to offer something for everyone. We support, value, and appreciate the diversity of the student body so if you can’t find a club you like, contact us to start your own!

Students can get involved in several ways including participation in the local chapter of Phi Theta Kappa which is an honors and service organization, with projects such as North’s community garden (the P-Patch), or by applying for a position with Student Leadership & Multicultural Programs.

While on campus, enjoy a tasty latté or meal at North’s favorite student gathering spot, The Grove, located in the Health Sciences and Student Resources Building.

Visit a drop-in class or work out at the Roy Flores Wellness Center, which features a strength and conditioning room, running track, and gym.

You can also entrust your child to North’s own Child Care Center, which offers care by early childhood educators for the NSC community right on campus. If you are searching for resources or confidential support, please visit the Benefits Hub located in our new Equity Welcome Center. This center is dedicated to reducing the gap in educational achievement for our marginalized students, and by supporting efforts to make North more inclusive, equitable, and accessible to all members of the community.

A fan of the arts? North’s Art Gallery features student, employee and community art. And be sure you don’t miss the annual Licton Springs Review. The review showcases poetry, essays, photography and more all by members of the NSC community.

North’s campus has ample parking and a quiet suburban feel right in your neighborhood--adjacent to North’s wetlands, the P-Patch and Greenlake Park just a few blocks away. There is also easy access to the Northgate/Thornton shopping and restaurant area, Metro bus service, and new Northgate Link Rail (opening Fall 2021). The campus is a 15-minute drive to downtown.
