Arrival in Chico-Spring 2020

The easiest way to reach Chico is to make the Sacramento Airport (SMF) your final destination.  Chico is approximately 100 miles (160 km) north of the Sacramento International Airport.  If you fly into the San Francisco Airport, it is best to get the short flight to Sacramento.  We do not recommend you take a bus or train from San Francisco to Sacramento or Chico. 

For more information about arriving in Chico and housing options, please check back soon for Spring 2020 New International Student Arrival Information. You may also email for additional information.
