Street Parking: Very limited four hour and two hour parking is available along streets adjacent to the San Francisco campus. Public transportation, shuttles, carpool, biking and/or ride-share (Lyft/Uber) is strongly suggested. With the opening of the Chase Center, and many near bye construction projects (including ours!) street parking is increasingly difficult to find.

CCA does not offer parking to students, as our campuses are located in urban dense environments where public transit is the recommended mode of transportation. Parking is very expensive and limited in both Oakland and San Francisco. CCA strictly enforces a no car policy for the first and second year students, and incoming transfer students that are required to live in CCA housing.
