San Francisco Bay Area
Cañada College is located in the foothills of Redwood City with spectacular views of the Peninsula (San Mateo County). The College is just 30 miles from two major cities, San Francisco and San Jose. San Francisco has many tourist attractions such as Golden Gate Bridge and Fisherman's Wharf and San Jose is located in “Silicon Valley," the home of computer technology and high-tech industry.
Our campus is accessible by Sam Trans bus #274 that connects to Caltrain with stations in between San Francisco and San Jose. The College is also within easy traveling distance to several colleges and universities including Notre Dame de Namur University, CSU East Bay, Mission College, Palo Alto University, Stanford University, UC Berkeley, San Francisco State University, San Jose State University, and Santa Clara University. Cañada College is also just 20 minutes from the Pacific Ocean, minutes to hiking areas and beautiful Redwood National Parks, and five hours to ski resorts in northern California.
The City of Redwood City is a small but vibrant city that takes pride in its diverse community. Redwood City hosts lively annual festivals including the Lunar New Year Celebration, Salsa Festival, and free movies and concerts at Courthouse Square.
