Not only does Santa Clara University have a beautiful campus, it also houses the Santa Clara Mission, which is well worth the trip. At El Camino and The Alameda across from the Santa Clara train station.

San jose or San Francisco is the nearest airport. From SFO, you can take caltrain which has station just in front of University. Else you can take flight to SJ airport & then take a taxi to the university.
