Here are directions to get to campus by car, public transportation or train. Once you get to the top of campus (19th Ave. and Holloway Ave.) or the bottom (Lake Merced and Font Blvd.) enter campus and walk straight to the center of campus. The Cesar Chavez Student Center building is literally in the heart of the campus, next to the main quad. Our building has a very distinct look; you can't miss it.
