The City of Chico is located 90 miles north of Sacramento in the northern end of the lush Sacramento Valley. With an urban population of just over 100,000, Chico has the charm of a small town, with all the amenities of a big city. Downtown Chico is within a block of campus and offers a wide variety of shopping, dining, and cultural experiences. Bidwell Park, one of the largest municipal parks in the country at 3,670 acres, stretches nearly 11 miles from campus east into the foothills and provides year-round recreation activities.
