Getting to and from Campus

Woolman Semester

Our campus is located about 3 hours from the San Francisco Bay area, 1.5 hours from Sacramento, and 2 hours from Reno, Nevada.

Student should plan flights into and out of the Sacramento International Airport (SMF). We are unable to help with travel arrangements via the Bay Area airports (San Francisco and Oakland) because of the distance. 

The Woolman Semester offers a shuttle to and from the Sacramento airport at the beginning and end of the semester and at the beginning and end of each vacation. As a general rule we pick up at the airport at 3:00pm the day a semester begins or a vacation ends. Please plan flights that arrive in Sacramento by 3:00pm. Shuttles depart the Woolman campus at 8:00am the day a vacation starts. Plan flights out of Sacramento 12:00pm and later. Additionally, local students often drive past the airport on their way home, and can drop a student off. For other times, Super Shuttle offers a service to the Grass Valley/Nevada City area, and can be reached at (800)258-3826.
