Our Setting

The Olympic Peninsula provides an extraordinary setting for Peninsula College. Our close proximity to mountains, forests, and the ocean provides you with opportunities to participate in outdoor learning and recreational experiences that are unequalled at other college locations in Washington’s community and technical college system.

The services and activities of Port Angeles, the largest city on the North Olympic Peninsula, are easily accessible, and students and community members alike enjoy the opportunity to work together on projects and special festivals that involve both groups.

Major cities, such as Seattle and Victoria, British Columbia, are only a few hours away, while major Native American museums and a United Nations World Heritage Site—Olympic National Park—are practically at our doorstep.
