The nearest airports are
  • SJC:
  • 17 miles (~25 minutes by car, closest/fastest if you are taking a car/cab/Uber)
  • SFO:
  • 23 miles (~30 minutes by car, best if you want ot use mass transit: BART to Caltrain, which goes right to campus)
  • OAK:
  • 28 miles (~40 minutes by car, not recommended because traffic across the bridge can greatly increase that time and there is no good BART/Caltrain route)
