The Agricultural Research & Technology Building (ARTB) represents a unique partnership between Washington State University and the agricultural community of northwestern Washington. The construction and renovation efforts represent many years of planning, fundraising, and hard work culminating in a modern, efficient research and meeting facility.
Washington State University Business Policies & Procedures provide the basis for offering services and/or renting space at our Center. Fees charged to cover expenses for building operations and maintenance are applied to administration, audio-visual, care of grounds, custodial and utility, environmental safety, repairs, security, and/or supervision costs. See our Sustainability page for our policies around sustainability.
Our business hours are from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. We are closed on holidays and weekends.
