Getting there


The Women’s Building is located at 3543 18th St.

Be aware – Parking can be difficult in the area, so plan accordingly. There are paid parking lots in the area, the closest being the 16th and Hoff Garage Lot #203. We also recommend not leaving anything exposed in your car while you are away from it, as that is the general rule throughout the San Francisco.

BART There will be a bus bridge between 19th Street and West Oakland. The 16th Street station is the closest one to the Women’s Building. A real-time website and downloadable app (available on iOS and Android)
