What airport should I fly into?

San Jose Airport (SJC) is the closest airport, about 20 minutes away. San Francisco Airport (SFO) is about 45 minutes away.

Are accommodations included?

Yes, we provide housing during the dates of the program. If you plan to arrive a day early or stay later, then you are responsible for booking your own lodging. Email welcome@su.org for hotel recommendations.

Do you recommend renting a car?

Car rental is usually not necessary. We provide all transportation during the program, such as travel to the lecture space and offsite activities. The program schedule is very intense, often from 8am-9pm; if you attend everything, you will not have much time to leave the program. We can also provide you with phone numbers for taxis.

What is the dress code?

Silicon Valley business casual, which typically means jeans and a dress shirt or nice top, blazer optional (although it can get chilly with the air conditioning). We recommend bringing one slightly more business formal suit or dress for any off-site networking opportunities. We offer optional morning fitness classes, so if you would like to participate, please also bring appropriate athletic wear.

Will WiFi be provided?

Yes! We provide WiFi.

What’s the next step?

The Tuesday before the program begins, our classroom portal will go live. You will automatically receive a welcome email with the necessary login information. In the portal, you will be able to access information about other participants, the faculty, the curriculum, schedule, and optional pre-reading.
