EWU taking over WSU’s Phase 1 classroom building

Eastern Washington University is taking over Washington State University’s Phase 1 classroom building on the Riverpoint higher education campus.

Located at the corner of North Riverpoint Boulevard and East Spokane Falls Boulevard, the building already houses EWU’s College of Business and Public Administration. Starting this fall, it will also be home to EWU’s new College of Health Science & Public Health.

“Having our own building in the University District is important to our continued growth in graduate programs on the campus,” said EWU President Rodolfo Arévalo. “This will also bolster our many academic and community partnerships in the region – including the one with WSU Spokane which made this move possible.”

WSU Spokane is moving some of its operations from the Phase 1 building to the Innovate Washington Building, at 665 N. Riverpoint Blvd. Innovate Washington, formerly called Sirti, was stripped of funding in the last legislative session.

The Phase 1 building has 119,600 square feet of space and contains a 205-seat auditorium, classrooms, faculty and staff office space and a computer lab.
