"Let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest-time, if we will not give up." Galatians 6:9
Located in Berkeley, California, across the bay from San Francisco, ABSW is just a few blocks south of the University of California.
The Graduate Theological Union Library, as well as the campuses of several other GTU seminaries can be reached by taking a twenty minute walk north across the University campus.
Most activities of ABSW happens in our main building, Hobart Hall. You will find the main entrance (2606 Dwight Way) to Hobart Hall under a second-floor walkway, right off of Dwight Way, near the intersection where Bowditch St. ends at Dwight Way. You can ring the bell for entry.
Depending on traffic, the Seminary is about twenty minutes from Oakland International Airport (17 miles) and a thirty to forty-five minute drive from San Francisco International Airport (25 miles). Visit the airports' websites for ground transportation information.
