Direction to Otto Miller Hall at Seattle Pacific University
(Enter 3469 Third Avenue West in your GPS)

Seattle Pacific University is on the north edge of Queen Anne Hill in Seattle, several blocks west of the Fremont bridge. Ordinarily, we meet in Bertona Hall, but in November we will meet in Otto Miller Hall.

From I-5, take the NE 50th Street exit and drive west. Turn left (south) on Fremont Avenue N — about two miles. Get into the right lane as you cross the Fremont bridge and take the first turn-off to the right and then immediately right again onto Nickerson Street. Follow Nickerson for about half a mile, and turn right (north) at the stoplight for 3rd Avenue West. Otto Miller Hall is the building on your left (see photo, below). There is additional parking behind the building on West Ewing Street. Look for sandwich boards with the CQA logo at the building entrance
