- Hospitality service (coffee, tea, water)

How to Register
Pre-registration is required for this event and can be done here!
Please note: Due to potentially limited space, Off Campus Living may need to be selective when determining which vendors are to be represented at the housing fair. Decisions will be made in a fair and equitable manner after considering factors such as space availability, student interest in vendor’s industry and industry balance.
Please contact the Office of Off Campus Living for more information at (360) 650-6863.
No refunds will be given for no-shows or for cancellations within one week of the event. Unpaid registrations cancelled within one week or that no-show will still be required to remit payment.
An auto-generated registration confirmation email from eMarket@cashnet.vendor.wwu.edu should arrive within two days of your completed registration (NOTE: this is also a confirmation of your registration fee payment). If you do not receive this email confirmation, you may not be registered for the career fair. Please contact our office at 360.650.6863. The contact person who registers online for the career fair will receive additional information from Career Services regarding event details and logistics and will be responsible for passing it on to all attendees. For your convenience, this information can also be found below.
Your organization will be included in our pre-event publicity, including an online list of participating vendors with website links. We will also provide a full directory of vendors to students attending the fair. Off Campus Living will conduct outreach to students, staff and faculty prior to the event to let them know you are participating. To further promote your company to students, you may also donate one or more items for a door prize. It’s a known fact that students love free stuff!
Wilson Library Reading Room, 4th floor, Western Washington University Bellingham, WA
Your registration includes one parking permit for the Lincoln Creek Transportation Center at 800 Lincoln Street. If you choose to have multiple drivers, the first vehicle to arrive from your organization will receive the permit. Additional drivers can purchase parking at the easy pay station in the lot upon arrival. Parking permits are $10 for the day.
Passenger and cargo shuttle service will be available from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 before the fair, and again from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. after the fair. There will be no shuttle service during the event. Should you need to leave the venue during the fair, you can catch the city bus across the street from the Wilson Library for a short ride back to Lincoln Creek Transportation Center.
Wilson Library will be available for set up beginning at 9:00 a.m. on the day of the event.
Coffee, tea and water service awaits you! For your convenience, the beverage tables will be set up behind the screens in the same room as the fair. Lunch will be on your table when you arrive. If extra lunches were ordered for your group, they will be there as well. Should you need anything else, there are lots of great food and beverage options nearby.
You may notice that we are working on generating as little waste as possible at our events. Please keep your eyes peeled for one of our handy Recycling stations and sort your paper, glass and plastic. Western (and Mother Nature!) will appreciate your efforts.
Because the fair ends at 3:00, we ask that you do not pack up your table prior to that time.
If you have questions about anything you see here, please contact Off Campus Living at 360.650.6863 and we will be more than happy to help. Hope to see you here!
