San Francisco Bay Area Center

About the Center

Located north of San Francisco, Meridian's San Francisco Bay Area Center first opened in 1993 and consists of administrative offices, executive offices, the University's Carnelian Library, and Cram Hall, which includes classroom and event space.

Petaluma’s beautifully restored Victorian era business district is within easy strolling distance of its picturesque river-turning basin. The Center's Spanish colonial buildings were designed and built in 1920; it is one of eighteen buildings included in a historic building walking tour.
