North Seattle College is located in the Northgate/Licton Springs residential neighborhood. Parking in the neighborhood is restricted by a residential parking zone, and vehicles without the appropriate zone permit are limited to 2 hours parking in designated spots. Because of limited parking and environmental concerns North strongly encourages bicycles, carpooling, and bus transportation for students and employees.
Discounted bus passes and carpool permits are available for students and employees. Free, sheltered bike racks are conveniently located in various places throughout the campus, and the Roy Flores Wellness Center has rental lockers available for bicycle commuters.
