Scroll to end for Maps section.

  • Most attendees fly into San Francisco International Airport (SFO). San Jose International Airport (SJC) is also a fine option. We do do not advise Oakland (OAK) because of complications of getting to campus from Oakland.
  • Students are expected to arrive on campus Friday evening (June 22) between 5:00 pm and 9:00 pm. Student Registration will be held Saturday, June 23 from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. The Welcome Meeting will be at 2:00 pm.

Transport Options

  • Download and set up a LYFT account before you arrive.
  • Some ensembles take advantage of the Super Shuttle. Feedback is more success with Inbound to campus than Outbound to airport.
  • With advance planning you can navigate public transportation for least cost. From SFO take BART one stop to MILLBRAE STATION, switch to CALTRAIN towards San Jose. Get off at PALO ALTO STATION. You will be on the correct side of the train tracks. Take free Marguerite Shuttle X or Y to Tresidder Student Union stop (WEEKDAYS ONLY). This endeavor will probably take two hours.
  • If you're feeling swanky, set up a ride with Palo Alto Limo. SUV averages $85 plus tip. Let them know you have multiple people with instruments and luggage.
