Visiting FST

To visit FST-Oceanside Campus (At Old Missions San Luis Rey)

FST is proud to announce the relocation of its academic facility to Old Mission San Luis Rey (Oceanside, CA).  Visits to the campus will begin in November of 2012.  New students of FST will start studying there in the fall of 2013.

Old Mission San Luis Rey is located approximately 35 miles north of San Diego.  It is off the east side of I-5 in Oceanside, about four miles.  The address of the Mission is located is at 4050 Mission Ave, Oceanside, CA, 92057.

To visit the Berkeley Campus:

The Franciscan School of Theology is located in the heart of the Graduate Theological Union campus – affectionately known as Berkeley’s “Holy Hill.” It’s appropriate that the FST building is painted what might be called sunflower yellow, the color that graces buildings throughout central Italy and the color that blankets the plain below the town of Assisi every summer.  The address of FST at Berkeley is 1712 Euclid Ave., Berkeley, CA, 94709.

We encourage prospective students to visit FST, sit in on classes, join students, staff, and the faculty in our dining room, take part in a liturgy – in other words, become a part of the community. Most visitors find even the briefest stay at FST memorable. For some, it’s a stay that will change their lives.

Please contact the Director of Recruitment, Mr. Vince Nims, to arrange for a visit by calling (510) 848-5232 Ext 18 or by emailing vnims@fst.edu or info@fst.edu.
