Public Transportation

Students who don’t have a car on campus are usually able to find rides with other students, whether to explore San Diego, go shopping, or get to the airport. Students normally walk, bike, or skateboard between campus and student housing.

San Diego also has great public transportation options available. The Escondido Transit Center is located 0.6 miles from campus, and is a hub for both bus and train service. Bus stops are also located near campus and the student apartments.



  • View the Sprinter light rail Schedule for frequent service from the Escondido Transit Center to Oceanside (the beach).
  • In Oceanside, you can connect to the Los Angeles Metrolink with service to downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, and LAX. Or you can connect to the Coaster with service to downtown San Diego.
