Maps & Directions
Though the campus' main office is located in northern Marysville, onboard a US Navy Facility, Columbia College is "open" to the public.
The "Marysville Campus" is located at the Navy Support Complex in north Marysville (Smokey Point area):
The college's Navy Support Complex office is located approximately 12 miles north of Everett and 50 miles north of Seattle. From the south take Interstate 5 north to exit 202, turn right on 116th Street, left on State Ave (cross railroad tracks), at the second light turn right onto 136th St., follow the Columbia College signs, left on 45th Ave, and left into the Navy Support Complex. From the north, take Interstate 5 south to exit 206, turn left onto 172nd Street, right on Smokey Point Boulevard at the first light, left on 136th Street, left onto 45th Ave and left into the Navy Support Complex. The Navy Support Complex is typically maintained at a lower security level than the Naval Station, meaning a base access permit is usually NOT required. The Columbia College office is located in the building just south of the Navy Exchange - there's plenty of parking available.
To the "Columbia College Everett office" located on board Naval Station Everett:
Traveling south on Interstate 5 (that is, you are north of Everett), take exit 194 (Everett Ave/Hwy 529) and if you are travelling north on I-5 (that is, you are south of Everett), exit on Pacific Ave. From either north bound or sound bound I-5, travel west towards the Puget Sound to West Marine View Drive. Turn right on West Marine View Drive and travel North. Make a left turn at the light beyond the Kimberly Clark plant into Naval Station Everett.
If you do not have a Department of Defense decal, you will need to stop at the Security Office close to the main gate for a vehicle pass and directions. You will need a valid driver's license, vehicle registration, and proof of vehicular insurance to enter the base. Just call us if you need assistance (425-304-4481; M-F)
Once on base, turn right on Wren (first street after main gate), left at the "T" intersection and park. Building 2000 is the large building in front of the parking lot; Columbia College's office is on the 2nd floor in the Navy College Office.
