Students travel to campus by foot, bicycle, bus, and automobile. If you choose to drive to Western Seminary, you will not need a parking permit to use the parking lots. You are welcome to park in the paved parking lots on the north and east sides of the campus. As a courtesy to our neighbors, we ask students not to park on the north side of Madison Street or the east side of 57th Avenue. We recommend for the safety of your belongings to not leave your car in the parking lots overnight.
Western Seminary’s Student Center is located in the chapel basement. This area is a comfortable place where you can eat your meals, study, check your mailbox, check your email or visit with friends.

The Café is also located in the chapel basement. Our café provides hot meals on select days throughout the week. The menu is posted weekly, so you can plan accordingly. Additionally, there are deli-style sandwiches, snacks, chips, fruit and microwaveable entrees available for purchase. You can purchase food from the Café by using our IOU system or by paying in cash. Please be aware that any IOUs that are not paid by the end of the month will be applied to your student account.
