Before you Arrive


Prepare yourself prior to arriving for orientation by reviewing the location of the campus where your orientation is scheduled.

Be sure to carefully review the directions.

(While only approximately 10 miles apart, the Bay Bridge, which joins Oakland and San Francisco, can cause a delay in your arrival time if you have to unexpectedly cross it.)

Overnight accommodations are plentiful in the Bay Area; however, to get the best deal we advise you book ahead.

Review our suggested recommendations for lodgings and be sure to note which proprietors extend a discount to CCA community.
