Northwest University

Northwest University is located near Seattle, Washington, and offers over 70 majors and academic programs. Established in 1934, we are a non-profit private Christian university offering associate, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees at our Kirkland campus or online.


Northwest University was founded by the Northwest Ministry Network of the Assemblies of God and opened to students on October 1, 1934. The District Presbytery appointed Dr. Henry H. Ness to be the first president. The University was housed in the facilities of Hollywood Temple, Seattle, Washington, for the first twenty-five years of its existence.


The people of Northwest University carry the call of God by continually building a learning community dedicated to spiritual vitality, academic excellence, and empowered engagement with human need.


The Northwest University Career Development Center serves students in the life calling discernment process by means of assessment, skill development, and life coaching.

Welcome Home

You aren't just choosing a university. You're also choosing a place to call home. At NU, we are dedicated to creating a close, supportive, and safe community for all students. A place where you'll learn how to live life well with others. A place where you can thrive academically, spiritually, and socially. A place that feels like it was made just for you. Because, guess what? It was.

Library services

Scholarly or academic journals are used to share the research with other scholars or researchers in the same field. Not every scholarly journal uses the peer-review process, but many research databases use “peer-reviewed” and “scholarly” (or “academic”) as synonyms.

Campus life

The Office of Community Life facilitates opportunities for leadership development, campus engagement, and co-curricular partnerships to help students foster discernment and meaning-making in their vocational calling.

Overseeing leadership development at Northwest, Community Life provides broad-based training to all student leaders.
