One of the Finest Places on Earth
Holy Names University is located on 60 wooded acres in the Oakland hills. The unique location offers a breathtaking, panoramic view of Oakland, San Francisco and the Bay. Nestled among the hills, the campus provides a safe haven and an extremely beautiful study atmosphere.
At the same time BART makes it easy to reach museums, sporting events, and world-class performing arts within minutes. Convenient day-long or weekend trips may be made to Yosemite National Park, the Sierra Gold Country, Lake Tahoe, Monterey Bay and Carmel, and to the Napa Valley and Sonoma County wineries. Parks surrounding the campus offer numerous opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, or bicycling.
The Bay Area's climate reflects its coastal location. The winter months are temperate, fall and spring offer sunny and clear days, and the summers provide foggy early mornings and sunny, breezy afternoons. Any time of year is perfect for work or leisure.
The Holy Names University setting, together with the Bay Area location delivers an experience that you will never forget!
