Visiting the Campus

You must see it to believe! The WJU campus is an impressive blend of modern architecture and state-of-the-art technology. Our 126-acre campus in Rocklin, Ca. is located just 20 miles northeast of Sacramento in the heart of California's Gold Country. Nearby are historic places like Old Town Sacramento and Old Town Auburn. Beautiful Folsom Lake, the fantastic Sacramento River and the majestic American River provide warm weather fun and refreshment. Even Lake Tahoe, Napa Valley and downtown San Francisco are less than 2 hours away! A thorough visit to the campus of your choice must be one of the criteria during your decision-making…

Each university is an individual, much like you. In order to get to know us fully, you must come meet us in person. The time is always right to visit, and most students take visiting seriously beginning in their junior year. There are many different ways to enjoy a visit:

The Jessup Visit allows you to fully experience William Jessup University in it's entirety on an individual basis.
