Beta-Gamma-Kappa Community | The Ridge

Exterior shot of Ridgeway Beta through the trees on a sunny day

 

Welcome to the Beta-Gamma-Kappa community, better known as BGK, up on the Ridge.

Set on a hill overlooking central campus and surrounded by a veil of trees, BGK is only a few minutes away from most classrooms. Highland Drive runs by the ridgeway, giving residents easy access to a bus stop that leads downtown Bellingham or the Historic Fairhaven District.

Below you will find information like front desk hours, community updates, floor plans, professional live-in staff, and more.
