Western Seminary Sacramento Campus

Western Seminary Sacramento Campus is located in the heart of the Sacramento Valley in Rocklin, CA. Since 2014, the campus has been on the site of Creekside Church.

Campus Building Access


Sacramento campus office hours are 9:00 am to 5:30 pm on Monday through Friday. *Hours may be different depending on the current Placer County COVID-19 tier.* Outside of these hours, our campus is accessible 15 minutes before and after any class meeting, which includes Saturdays, and is closed on Sundays.

To keep you secure outside of office hours, our campus is outfitted with proximity access points. You will be given a student ID card at the beginning of your first semester, which doubles as a building access proximity card. Please be sure to wear or carry your ID/access card on your person at all times while on campus, as you will need it to access the restrooms and main entrance after office hours.

No overnight parking is permitted. Service animals only are allowed on campus with proper documentation in advance.
