How to Contact Your Student

By telephone
Students must provide their own telephones if they wish to use a landline phone number. If they do have a phone connected in their room, they will need an answering machine to receive messages. Students living in East Hall do not have telephone connections in their rooms; they are welcome to use the courtesy phones located in the lounges.

By regular mail
Each student living on campus is assigned a campus address. Addresses include a four-digit student box number and should be written as follows:

Student name
Whitworth S.B.# _ _ _ _
300 W. Hawthorne Road
Spokane, WA 99251
