Travel Information:


Stanford is roughly equidistant from the San Francisco and San Jose airports. Three major airports serve the San Francisco Bay Area, including San Francisco International (SFO)San Jose Mineta International (SJC), and Oakland International (OAK). Although San Francisco is the largest of the area airports and offers the most airlines and flights, some visitors find that San Jose’s smaller size makes it a somewhat more convenient alternative, especially for domestic flights.
