  • Where Are We?

    Edmonds Community College is 25 minutes north of Seattle and 45 minutes north of the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Located in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States, Edmonds CC is approximately 1.5 hours south of Vancouver, Canada — and minutes away from parks and beaches on the Puget Sound.

    Our campus is in Lynnwood, Washington — a safe, quiet suburb of Seattle that offers walking and biking trails, an aquatic center, a golf course, extensive shopping, and a great mix of dining options. Nearby Edmonds is a quiet town on the shore of Puget Sound, a major inlet of the Pacific Ocean. It offers a wide range of boutique restaurants, shopping, art galleries, and a ferry terminal for travel to scenic peninsulas and a national park.

    Nearby Seattle is a hub for business and culture and is home to Starbucks Coffee Company and Amazon.com, Inc. and to professional sports teams such as the Seattle Mariners, Seattle Sounders FC, and the Seattle Seahawks. Microsoft Corporation’s headquarters and the Boeing Company are also close by. Seattle is known for its exceptional art, music, and culinary scenes — offering several museums, contemporary and classical music venues, and award winning restaurants.
