Getting Here


San Francisco International (SFO) is approximately 25 miles north and San Jose International (SJC) approximately 20 miles south of Stanford. Both airports offer public transport, shuttle and hire car options that will get you here.

Oakland International (OAK) is also an option but is further from campus and can be more difficult to travel to/from using public transport and shuttles.

Public Transportation

The San Francisco Bay Area’s Caltrain connects San Francisco and San Jose (including both airports) with a stop in Palo Alto. Attendees using Caltrain should get off at the Palo Alto station.


Stanford’s free shuttle service, the Marguerite, meets most Caltrain services at the Palo Alto station and can take you to many popular destinations on campus—including the Alumni Center where Admit Weekend Check-In is located.
