Getting There, Campus Map & Parking

If you are arriving by plane, the closest airport is San Jose International (SJC). Mission College is six miles from the airport, about a 15-20 minute drive. There may be public transportation available from the airport to the college — here is a link to information provided by the college

This campus map is labeled with CFT meeting locations and our parking location.

If you are driving, you may use the Google map below to find directions to the college. 

Parking: Please park in Lot C. We will have parking permits available in Room HM 104 during breakfast. It is important that you place the parking permit on your dashboard because campus police will be issuing parking tickets. 

Travel Reimbursement & Airline Reservations

The CFT covers the cost of travel expenses for committee members. 

If you will be flying to attend the meetings, the CFT will make your airline reservations. The deadline to request airline reservations (through the online registration form) was November 15. If you have any questions about travel, please contact Angelica Vargas.
