Directions to the campus


1a. From San Jose airport, take 101 North (towards San Francisco)
1b. From San Francisco airport, take 101 South (towards San Jose)
2.  Take Montague Expressway exit towards Agnew Center

Public Transport

If you fly into San Jose, take a taxi (the campus is only 4 miles from the airport). The taxi fare from San Francisco airport is expensive (about $75). It's possible, but not especially convenient, to travel to Sun by train. Take a shuttle-bus to the Millbrae Caltrain station, then a one-hour train ride to Santa Clara, where you will need to call for a taxi to take you the remaining two miles to the campus (or your hotel). Ask for more information if you want to take this option.
