The California Institute of Integral Studies is located at 1453 Mission Street, San Francisco CA 94103 in the South of Market, or SoMa, neighborhood in San Francisco, CA. It is close to downtown San Francisco, Union Square and only a short trip on the light rail to the Castro neighborhood.
Air travelers to the San Francisco Bay Area use San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and Oakland International Airport (OAK). Allow an additional hour if taking the subway (BART to Civic Center, see more below) from these airports to our campus.
BART, or the Bay Area Rapid Transit, is the subway system (see: https://www.bart.gov/), which is accessible by both local airports and the CIIS campus stop is Civic Center then about a 10-minute walk to campus.
MUNI, or San Francisco municipal transportation busses or light rail, go to places BART does not though there are connections to BART from around San Francisco. From MUNI, the CIIS campus stop is Van Ness Street Station and about a 5-minute walk to CIIS Campus. (see: https://www.sfmta.com/muni) Take MUNI to the Castro Street Station for LGBTQ happenings in that historic neighborhood.
