You’ll enjoy access to endless outdoor recreational activities, as well as big city attractions like shopping and entertainment without the congestion or expense of living in a larger metropolitan area. Gonzaga Law is within walking distance to downtown Spokane, and affordable parking is available right in front of the school. Four distinct seasons create an ideal backdrop for skiing, hiking, boating, golf, and year round activities.
