About Spokane

Why Spokane feels like home

Come and experience the Inland Pacific Northwest. Spokane and the surrounding region provides a number of opportunities for Gonzaga Law students. You’ll enjoy access to endless outdoor recreational activities and big city attractions like shopping and entertainment without the congestion or expense of living in a large metropolitan area. Spokane features four distinct seasons, creating an ideal backdrop for skiing, hiking, boating, golf, and year-round activities:

  • A colorful, crisp Fall, perfect for a visit to Greenbluff to pick pumpkins!
  • A cold, snowy winter, where skiing, snowboarding, or snowshoeing at nearby mountains are favorite weekend activities.
  • A springtime full of cherry blossoms, lilac blooms, and more that paint he city in a palette of bright colors.
  • A warm, dry summer where splashing in the region's countless lakes or the city's many (free) pools is the order of many a day. 

Located along the banks of the Spokane River, Gonzaga’s beautiful campus is directly connected to miles of biking and jogging trails to stimulate your mind and help you feel right at home. Gonzaga Law School is within walking distance to downtown Spokane, and affordable parking is available right out front.
