About Cheney

Welcome to the City of Cheney, Washington. Cheney is a thriving community with a population of 12,410 that is located in Spokane County, just 17 miles southwest of the city of Spokane. Our quality of life is unmatched because of a small town atmosphere and family-friendly environment.  Cheney’s population is actually smaller than the EWU student body, but campus is the truly the heart of town.

Part suburb, part true college town, Cheney is home to Cheney Rodeo Days (which is amazing, by the way) and one of the state’s smartest and most talented school districts.
