Major highway routes to Scripps and the other Claremont Colleges are the San Bernardino Freeway (I-10), the Orange Freeway (57), the Pomona Freeway (60), and the Foothill Freeway (I-210).

To reach Scripps College from any area except Pasadena, take the 10 Freeway to Indian Hill Boulevard (exit 47) and drive approximately 2 miles north. Turn right onto Tenth Street and proceed east. Cross over College Avenue and follow signs for parking.

To reach the 10 Freeway from Orange County and the south, take the 57 Freeway north or, from Long Beach, take the 605 Freeway north. From west and southwest of Los Angeles, take the 60 Freeway east to the 57 Freeway north to the 10 Freeway east. Once on the 10 Freeway, follow the previous directions to campus.

From Pasadena and the San Fernando Valley, take the 210 Freeway east and exit at Towne Avenue. Turn right onto Towne, then left onto Foothill Boulevard. Continue on Foothill just over a mile and turn right onto Dartmouth Avenue.

By Plane

If you are flying into Southern California, we recommend you use the Ontario International Airport (ONT) (909) 937-2700, which is only a 15- minutes-east drive to the Scripps campus. The Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), (310) 646-5252, is another alternative; it is approximately an hour’s drive from campus without traffic.

Taxi/Shuttle: Airport taxi and shuttles services are available to The Claremont Colleges and nearby hotels. The shuttle cost is approximately $25 (for 1 person – incrementing $9 for each additional person) from ONT to Claremont; $50 from LAX to Claremont.
